Pitch invader makes stewards look stupid

Entering the field of play, more often than not, results in a lifetime ban for the perpetrator. So, if someone takes the gutsy decision to invade the pitch, then they may as well enjoy it while they can.

That is precisely what happened during Yeovil Town's resounding 4-0 victory against Leyton Orient in the FA Cup third round on Saturday, as one determined supporter ran the entire length of the field before his capture.

The ballsy fan was filmed on a camera phone from behind the goal as he evaded numerous high-vis clad stewards before jumping some advertising hoardings and heading down the tunnel.

Said supporter was eventually caught by officials and received a banning order from Yeovil. And, while GMS does not condone such actions, we have been suitably impressed by this fleet-footed invader.

Thanks to 101greatgoals for spotting this first.
