Football: Parachutist interrupts English match
LONDON (REUTERS) - An English minor league football match was halted at the weekend when a parachutist landed in the middle of the pitch.
To the amazement of the Salisbury and Chester players and the 1,000 fans inside the stadium, the airborne invader touched down in the second half.
He then calmly packed up his chute and walked off to applause from the supporters.
Former Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham, now playing for fifth-tier Chester, said it was one of the strangest things he had seen in his long career.
