A football match had to be abandoned when a ‘tsunami of cows’ invaded the pitch.

All of a sudden, a massive herd of 180 cows broke through a wooden fence and ruined the game.

Both teams were shocked by the pitch invasion and some players ran off in fear.

Others were able to hold their nerve, and quickly grabbed the corner flags and began rounding up the cows.

He said: ‘There was a commotion and noise from the corner of the pitch.

‘I looked at it and I saw what I would describe as a tsunami of cows coming towards us.

‘They broke through the fence and charged onto the pitch.

‘There was 180 apparently, they were quite large and some players scarpered quickly.

‘A few of us decided we had to get them off the pitch and picked up corner flags and shepherded them off.’

After the cow chaos, the players decided to call it a draw and headed to the pub for a few drinks 

Thanks to the quick thinking of Nick and the other players the pitch was soon clear of cows, but not in a good condition.

He continued: ‘There were deposits all over the pitch, everyone found it very amusing.

‘We all agreed it was ridiculous to carry on and shook hands and called it a draw, before heading to the pub.

‘I’ve played football for 30 years and seen some strange things on the pitch but I’ve never seen any thing like that.’
