It all kicked off after Leamington confirmed that Kettering’s Michael McGrath had been sent off for striking the referee, before he lost it and started smashing up the dressing room, while there was a further tweet suggesting he tried to run back on for round two and had to be restrained, but that final tweet has since been deleted:
