VIDEO: Goose on pitch at Macclesfield vs Grimsby

League Two clash brought to a halt for bird pitch invader.



There was a goose loose on the pitch at Macclesfield Town as they hosted Grimsby for a League Two clash on Saturday.

The game at Moss Rose was brought to a halt by the referee while the bird waddled across the grass.

The stewards were forced to run around after the goose pitch invader and attempt to trap it.

They eventually succeeded:
