A football club has apologised after one of its members urinated over students in a common room during a social - and is punishing the individual by making him down shots.
The University of East Anglia (UEA) Rovers were dressed in Lederhosen and on a night out at the university's lower common room (LCR) when one of their members took out his penis and urinated on students.
Shortly after the social, the club, which is made up of students and non-students, tweeted:
What are we like, eh?— UEA Rovers (@UEA_CUFC_Rovers) February 9, 2014
Following a backlash on Twitter, the club added: "On the whole, the social was a great success, but we accept the actions of a minority have tainted what was a great night."
The individual is being dealt with "internally" by the club.
However it seems his punishment is to down six Jagerbombs, according to one tweet:
James Glover has escaped any match ban from the FA, or Rovers, but has been fined his weekly wage of 6 Jaegerbombs— UEA Rovers (@UEA_CUFC_Rovers) February 12, 2014
Fellow UEA students expressed their anger at the incident on Twitter:
@victoriafinan Whoever pissed on the floor should still be banned. Revolting.— Rachel Knott (@_rachelknott) February 9, 2014
The Union has now opened an investigation into the incident. Anthony Moore, Representation Support Worker, told The Tab: “It is really important that the membership takes these matters seriously. I have been liaising with the ENTS staff and an investigation is underway.”
The individual involved has meanwhile been temporarily suspended from all union licensed facilities pending conclusion of the formal investigation.Suggest a correction
