Unfortunate ball boy memories for one Swans legend

The now infamous 'ball boy' incident at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night brought back some rather mixed memories for one former Swan and Welsh international.

 
PRLog - Jan. 25, 2013 - The now infamous 'ball boy' incident at the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night brought back some rather mixed memories for one former Swan and Welsh international.

Sitting in the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday night, enjoying a meal with his employer, Nev Wilshire, CEO of Save Britain Money, was one Chris Marustik. Chris now aged 52 played 152 games in the Swansea midfield between 1978-1985 picking up 6 caps for Wales along the way.

While enjoying watching the Swans reach a historic Wembley final, and sitting open mouthed, with the rest of us, when Eden Hazard earned a red card for his clash with a ball boy, Chris somehow forgot to tell his boss about an incident of his own back in his 80’s heyday.

It was while playing away at Plymouth Argyle in April 1985 that Chris Marustik endured his own moment of madness. He picked up the match ball and hurled it an unfortunate ball boy who had been taking too long to retrieve the football. The ball connected with the lad and Chris was issued with a red card, earning himself notoriety and several very unflattering newspaper headlines.

Despite Chris failing to disclose this to his employer during the game, Mr Wilshire was soon reminded about the event by another employee. Chris, now a sales manager for Save Britain Money, is rather embarrassed all over again and has agreed to make a donation to a local charity!

If there is a message here for Eden Hazard, it is surely that these things never get forgotten!
