Things are a little on tight side down at the arse-end of League Two at the moment, with Northampton’s last-gasp stoppage-time equalizer against Rotherham on Saturday enough to keep the Cobblers out of the relegation zone by a single point with just two games left to play.
Cue minor pitch invasion…
Thankfully, the Daily Mail managed to collar the man responsible, 18-year-old quadriplegic computer programmer Derry Felton, for a quick word after the game:
“I said to my mate, ‘If [Northampton] score I will go on the pitch’, but I didn’t believe that they would. Then they did and it was a bit of a blur really.
“I didn’t know what was happening and then I was in the middle of the pitch and I just thought how did I get here?
“It was just a spur of the moment thing and I never thought it would end up on You Tube or make me famous or anything.
“I don’t know if I would ever do it again, because it just sort of happened.”
All well and good, though Pies can’t help but feel that the video is missing a really ill-judged rugby tackle from one of the Sixfields stewards.
