EARLY EXIT ... the flasher was thrown out of the Hartlepool United v Sunderland match.

A FLASHER was ejected from a pre-season friendly for exposing his genitals to rival football fans.

The man, believed to be a Sunderland fan, was watching the Black Cats against Hartlepool United last night when the incident happened at the Rink end of Victoria Park.

He flashed his private parts to home supporters, but his lewd antics were spotted by stewards, who removed him from the ground and informed police.

Officers gave the man a ‘direction to leave’ notice, forcing him to leave the area.

A spokeswoman for Cleveland Police said: “We received information that a man had been ejected from the stadium for exposing himself.

“We stopped the man near to Clarence Road and he was given a direction to leave notice. We have not received a complaint about the man from the club.”
