Hawks secretary Trevor Brock has revealed the Football Association will charge the club with failure to control their supporters after a streaker disrupted Monday night’s Blue Square South game against Dorchester Town.

The game was brought to a halt midway through the second half by a streaker clad in a lime-green Mankini, pictured right.

He was eventually apprehended by Dorchester player-manager Ashley Vickers, who was shown a red card by the referee for his troubles.

Brock said: ‘The referee will include the incident in his report and the FA will then automatically charge us and ask us for our comments.

‘Once they receive our views, they will then decide if they want to take matters any further. It is difficult to predict what will happen. We will be dealing with the streaker and it is likely to include some sort of ban.’
