LONDON (AP) - A soccer player received a red card for tackling a scantilly-clad invader during an English sixth-tier match.

Dorchester player-manager Ashley Vickers was red-carded for violent conduct after ending the intruder’s 30-second jaunt with a thudding tackle in the 70th minute of the game against Havant & Waterlooville on Monday.

Vickers says “the funny thing was, the stewards actually thanked me for it. But the ref decided to send me off.”

Dorchester lost the match 3-1. The game was tied 1-1 before the intruder appeared on the field. He was wearing nothing but a bright green “mankini” thong and curly black wig.

Havant has banned the perpetrator from the stadium.
