If there is one thing people associate with non-league football it is a good old fashioned clattering tackle and red card.
In that respect, Evesham Town's Ashley Williams fulfilled his part of the bargain this past weekend when he received his marching orders in the 90th minute of his team's FA trophy clash against Frome Town.
Unfortunately for the midfielder, things were made all the more awkward because of the man on the receiving end of his over-zealous challenge.
As reported by the Telegraph, Williams' red card came after a hefty tackle on Frome Town's Clayton Green - one of the Evesham Town star's best mates.
Whilst catching your pal in a friendly game of five-a-side might be laughed off within a matter of minutes, when it happens in a crunch cup fixture it is no laughing matter.
Especially when Williams had already agreed to give Green a lift home from the game beforehand.
According to the Telegraph's report, Williams was actually so enraged by his dismissal that he didn't even give his opponent/best mate time to get changed after the game before insisting they left the ground.
That must have been a fun drive home for Green - especially considering that, according to the Evesham Town Twitter account at least, the Frome man had made the most of William's late challenge.
The icing on the cake? The two friends (possibly now enemies) will get to do it all again this week after the FA Trophy clash ended in a 1-1 draw after extra time.
With Williams' suspension not kicking in until this weekend, the pair could find themselves going in for a few more 50-50s.
Green may want to prepare himself for the repercussions and, also, the likelihood that he will have to make his own way home after the game this time.
