Jay Hart of the British semi-pro soccer team Clitheroe was cut from the team after video of him and the fan you see was made public. They were having sex in the opposing team’s dugout after a match, writes the publication Screamer.
The match in question was a 4-1 Clitheroe loss to team Mossley. Coincidentally, Mossley had advertised the game as “ladies day” in appreciation of their female fans, according to Screamer and The Daily Mirror.
While the two were going at it, someone nearby secretly began recording the encounter. Afterward, the video was shared online and caught the attention of Hart’s football club, which swiftly made the decision to get rid of the player.
“Striker Jay Hart can be heard laughing on the mobile phone footage as he was caught still in his club T-shirt…”
The Mirror continues:
“The face of the fan cannot be seen. Within hours of the footage being circulated to team-mates and fans, Hart was sacked by the club, who play in Evo-Stik Division 1 North.”
Club chairwoman Anne Barker said that Hart had brought the club into disrepute. She said “Any players, while wearing a Clitheroe tracksuit, represents the club.”
“We expect a certain level of behavior and discipline. And that wasn’t it.”
To his credit, Hart – of Accrington, Lancashire – apologized for the incident and said he was “full of regret.”
The video appears to have been scrubbed from the internet. However, there is still an image on twitter.
The story isn’t all fun, though. Hart’s girlfriend slammed whoever was responsible for posting the video clip, according to The Daily Mirror.
She took to the Clitheroe Football Club Facebook page to vent her frustration at those who had made light of the incident.
She wrote: “Have a bit of decency for the people it’s affected. Thank god my kids are too young to read.”
