A FOOTBALL team who tried to put the wind up a penalty taker were left with more than red faces. One of Chorlton Villa's players was given a yellow card for allegedly breaking wind as a spot kick was taken.
The penalty was saved - but ordered to be retaken when the ref decided the noise had put the kicker off. Villa's goalkeeper was red carded for saying he believed the ref was 'the worst he had seen in years'. Minutes later another Villa player was sent off for expressing disbelief that his team-mate had been booked for flatulence. The re-taken penalty was scored by rivals International Manchester.
Villa, who won the game 6-4, finished the match at Turn Moss, Stretford, with just eight men. They had already had another player dismissed for giving the ref abuse.
