A NON-LEAGUE keeper broke stadium lights after his shocking penalty blazed into the stands.
Nuneaton were playing Stratford in the BetVictor Southern League Central Division – the seventh tier of English football.
Just before half-time the home side were awarded a penalty, and up stepped keeper Tony Breeden to take the spot-kick.
His team-mates were happy to give the stopper the responsibility from 12-yards.
They, along with the groundsman, probably wish they never had.
Breeden leathered the kick, sailing into the stands and smashing stadium lights.
Fans online were left in hysterics after Twitter user Nick Dillam shared the hilarious footage.
One said: "Some effort to take the light off the ceiling."
Another said: "I’m in tears."
One added: "Absolute shocker."
Another added: "Quality lower league football."
Fortunately for Breeden his team-mate Joel Kettle bailed him out netting the opening goal.
Nuneaton were actually awarded another penalty with five minutes to go – but they decided to turn to Callum Powell instead of their keeper.
Powell made no mistake from the spot, with the game ending 2-0.
