Like Luis Suarez, but sneakier

This incredible incident comes from last weekend’s FA Trophy match between Blyth Spartans and Droylsden. It is a terrific save, diving backwards to tip the ball away. Unfortunately, it was made by one of Droylsden’s outfield players.

Somehow the match officials manage to spot the blatant handball and Blyth Spartans are forced to make do without a certain goal or even a consolation penalty.

The Matrix-esque replay is particularly enjoyable!
