Callum Camps left his headlights on and the Rochdale stadium announcer read out his number plate mid-match


When the stadium announcer reads out a car registration number over the PA, every fan dreads it's going to be theirs - but they probably never consider it might belong to one of the players.

But that's exactly what happened to Callum Camps during Rochdale's League One match with Gillingham. He'd left his headlights on.

The 20-year-old told BBC Radio Manchester: "I was listening because the ball was out of play, and as soon as I heard the (registration) I was thinking that's my number plate.

"I thought I'd blocked someone in, so I said to (team-mate) Jamie Allen, 'That's my car, that'."

Camps managed to find someone on the sidelines to give him a hand. He said: "I looked over to (Dale head of sports science) Kevin Gibbins and said, 'My car's just been read out, can you sort it out?'"

It obviously wasn't too distracting for Camps - he went on to score his team's goal in a 1-1 draw.
