Greg Ngoyi has vowed to continue to entertain the Wealdstone faithful in future - but for all the right reasons.
The 21-year-old produced his own 33-minute soap opera against Hendon on Saturday after emerging as a second half substitute.
He missed a penalty, played a part in his side's equaliser, scored the winner, got sent off, and won the man-of-the-match award.
Ngoyi apologised to his victim, Sam Collins, his team-mates and management, and has been fined by the club as he prepares to serve a three-match ban.
However, the former Edgware hot-shot insists he is not a dirty player and has pledged to make amends when he is available for selection again.
"Everything happened so quickly," said Ngoyi, whose only other red card came in a youth game for Northampton Town when he was 15.
"To come on, miss a penalty - which was terrible by the way - then to score the winner, get sent off and be voted man of the match was the most surreal substitute's appearance I'm ever likely to make.
"I'm not the type that gets sent off, but the adrenaline had taken over and I did not want the guy to put the ball back in our box.
"There is no way I deliberately set out to hurt anyone, and I apologised to him (Collins) after. I'm gutted I've got a three-match ban but I can have no complaints. It was a rash challenge."
Prior to his red card Ngoyi was delighted with the impact he made on proceedings. "I've missed penalties before but I always feel confident of scoring when another chance comes along," he said.
"I have not been here long and don't expect to walk straight into the first team. Gordon is building with me and I think I have six goals in eight or nine games now, which is not too bad."
Since injury left Northampton no option but to release him, Ngoyi has failed to settle at his other previous clubs until now.
"I'm very happy at Wealdstone," he says. "The team is young, athletic and hungry to succeed. It helps that there are lads my age who have come from pro clubs, which is something I can relate to.
"No disrecpect to my previous clubs, but a lot of their players were older and winding down their careers. They did not share the same enthusiasm as me to succeed and play at the highest level."
And Ngoyi's aims for the rest of this season and the next?
"I want to get into double figures by the end of the season, whether that is from the bench or starting," he said. "Then I want to get my head down, have a good pre-season and become a regular starter."
