London - The kick-off in a Scottish football match was delayed on Saturday
after a herd of wild deer left excrement all over the pitch, one of the
clubs involved said.
"Kick off suspended due to the ref being delayed, the pitch currently
waterlogged and covered in deer faeces," Nairn County, who play in
the Highlands League, tweeted ahead of their game at Fort William.
The game at Fort William's Claggan Park eventually ended in a 6-2
defeat for the hapless home team, their 29th loss in 31 games this
"I just hoped the game would go ahead. We can't catch a break at the
moment," Fort William player Scott Hunter told Sky Sports of a club
which has not won a game for two years.
"It's been a tough season but we want to keep the club going for the community."
