VIDEO: Shrewsbury player almost runs into steward when coming out of the tunnel to warm up

Collision avoided before kick-off on final day of the season.


Shrewsbury Town’s Oliver Norburn almost ran straight into a steward as he emerged from the tunnel ahead of kick-off against Walsall on Saturday.

The League Two sides played out a goalless draw at New Meadow in their final game of the season, a result that relegated the visitors.

Leading some of the players out for their pre-match warm up, Norburn was looking down at the ground as he jogged onto the pitch.

Neither the Shrewsbury player nor the steward walking across his path realised the other was coming and there was a dramatic near collision before the match had even got started.
