Port Vale Player Appears To Drink Beer On Pitch While Doing Fortnite Dance

Luke Hannant living his best life...

The long-suffering fans of League Two’s Port Vale have had to watch as local rivals Stoke City ascended the football pyramid over the last decade or two, even managing to earn themselves a place in the Europa League, which must have been pretty painful for them.

The Potters have slithered down to the second tier though, which means the two old rivals had a first meeting - of sorts - since 2002 last night. Stoke’s u-23s took the short trip to Burslem and Vale Park for a Checkatrade tie last night to face the home side’s first team and were on the end of a 4-0 pasting.

The players themselves seemed to enjoy it, with Luke Hannant making an unusual celebration after scoring a goal in an especially exuberant moment, picking up a bottle of beer that had been thrown at him by the travelling fans and appearing to drink it while doing a Fortnite dance before throwing it back towards them. (To be fair, it looks like he was only mock-drinking it.)

It was perhaps symptomatic of a bad-tempered affair on and off the pitch, with Staffordshire police saying today that eleven arrest - and counting - have been made after some ‘despicable behaviour’ unfolded at the event.

Stoke City themselves were less than pleased with those claiming to represent the club and pledging to work with the police to crack down on those involved.

"Where this behaviour involved so-called supporters of Stoke City we will be working closely with Staffordshire Police and Port Vale to bring the culprits to justice,” they said in a statement

Have a look at Hannant’s antics below.
