Newport County match delayed because goalposts were too high
This is something that you certainly don’t see very often, if ever. Newport County’s Blue Square Premier match against Alfreton Town was delayed after the officials at the ground refused to start the match as they believed that one of the goals was higher than the other.
It seems rather bizarre, particularly as presumably these are the goals that have been used at Rodney Parade all season?
The club’s official Twitter feed revealed the issue to fans, who were forced to wait at the goals were adjusted before the game kicked off as normal.
Surely that’s a fairly eagle-eyed spot from the officials?
