Mickey Thomas, a former professional footballer, admitted to getting his kit off late at night on the pitch with a woman.
When the 67-year-old Welshman scored, he was playing for Chelsea. Instead of returning to Wales, he and his best friend and teammate Joey Jones would sometimes stay in London.
“If we didn’t want to drive, we’d kip in the referee’s room at Stamford Bridge,” Mickey said. I’d turn on the floodlights and kick around a couple of times. I also used the center circle one night when I was with some female company.”

Mickey was imprisoned for forgery in 1993 while at Wrexham, so he’s no stranger to controversy. He once had to sneak back into prison after sneaking out for a pint, he told FourFourTwo magazine.
“On a Thursday night, two of the wardens who were big football fans would take me out for a drink,” Mickey chuckled.
“I’d tell them a couple of stories, and they’d devour them.” We were locked out of the prison one night after the session lasted too long. Before we were found, they had to get me back in. They were fortunate enough to stumble across a ladder.”
Meanwhile, Mickey will complete his Walk For Life trek up Snowdon on Saturday to express his gratitude to Wrexham Hospital for a life-saving tumor operation.
