What's the most bizarre reason you've heard for a football match being abandoned? Rain, a thunderstorm, fighting. Not this time. Just when I thought that I'd heard it all, along comes another, an absolute classic.
The players from Pinner JFC and Los Blancos were tucking into their half-time oranges at the JC MSFL Division Four contest when Les Conway, the Pinner chairman, informed both teams and the referee that the match could not continue. Why, I hear you ask? Because the pitch was unplayable, apparently.
