VIDEO: Ball boy has to tunnel into advertising hoarding to retrieve lost ball at Partick Thistle

Crawls into dark triangular prism.


A Partick Thistle ball boy was sent through the hole at one end of an advertising hoarding to fetch the ball after it was kicked down there during a game against Dundee United.

Partick Thistle were beaten 1-2 by Dundee United at Firhill on Friday night but the match was interrupted when a ball was lost between the ad boards.


One poor ball boy had to tunnel into the claustrophobic structure near the halfway line in an effort to go and get it following pressure from the crowd.

The sides’ second match of the new Scottish Championship season carried on before the young helper could bask in his successful retrieval.
