But 24-year old Robert Fitzgerald did it on Saturday as his side shocked Newcastle with a 3-1 win.

The fan, from Stevenage, has been charged with common assault and going on to a playing area at a designated football match contrary to sections 4 and 5 of the Football Offences Act, Hertfordshire Police said.

He has been bailed to appear before Stevenage Magistrates on Jan 26.

Stevenage's Scott Laird was knocked to the ground after the club's 3-1 victory against Newcastle.

Police and the Football Association both began investigations after Laird was floored when fans ran on to the pitch as League Two Stevenage celebrated Saturday's giant-killing.

There is only one thing for it - LOCK HIM UP!
