VIDEO: Leek Town fan runs full length of pitch to celebrate in front of Colne supporters in play-off semi-final win

Late winner deep into extra time of promotion contest.



A Leek Town fan got onto the pitch and ran to the other end to do a sliding celebration in front of the opposition supporters after an Evo-Stik West Division play-off semi-final win.

There were celebrations at a packed Harrison Park on Wednesday night after the hosts scored a winning goal in the 119th minute of extra time in the promotion play-off game against Colne.

Following Leek substitute Tim Grice’s late strike, a pitch invader managed to run the full length of the pitch to gloat before being met in the penalty area by an opposition fan.

The goalkeeper easily separated the scuffling pair before the bad-tempered non-league clash, that Colne finished with nine men, was able to finish.

Well. That match had a bit of everything.

> 2 red cards
> 1 pitch invader
> 2 disallowed goals
> 2 periods of extra time
> 1 last minute winner

Not bad for £8.

Amazing match. Deserved winners. @leektownpic.twitter.com/N5pO83xkgH
