Fan runs onto the pitch and does cartwheels during National League match

One particular fan runs onto the pitch and does cartwheels during the National League match between Weymouth and Halifax on Saturday night.

The moment, which has fans on social media laughing, came around the 70th minute mark of what ended up being a 5-1 win for the Shaymen.

It was a much needed win for Pete Wild’s Halifax, who are up to 15th in the National League table, whereas Weymouth at 21st.

It’s the second time that Halifax have scored goals against their opponents in consecutive matches, previously beating Barnet 5-2 on Wednesday.

The Twitter admin behind the Terras’ social media page wasn’t happy at we he was seeing unfold in front of him however as you can see in the tweet below…

Pete Wild made one change to the starting line-up that destroyed Barnet in midweek with Kieran Green replacing Jack Earing and they picked up where they left off just three days earlier.

There was an early scare for Halifax when Ollie Harfield made a fine save out of Sam Johnson in the first minute.

But the Shaymen soon took control with Luke Summerfield and Martin Woods pulling the strings in front of a dominant back line.

Nyal Bell signalled the attacking intentions with a fourth minute shot that went narrowly wide.

A fine passing move saw the ball break to Summerfield whose shot looped up in the air, then met by Danny Williams who controlled it and volleyed home from close range for his first goal of the season.

Kieran Green looked to double the lead minutes later with a run and shot that was turned away for a corner by Jack Bycroft in the Weymouth goal.

The second goal came thanks to Niall Maher who netted with the aid of a deflection.

Another corner caused concern in the Weymouth defence and Jeff King’s shot was cleared with Jake Hyde ready to pounce.

Town went into the dressing room with a two goal advantage and happy with what they produced.

A quickly taken short corner from the hosts halved the deficit when Josh McQuoid rose to head home from close range.

Gevaro Nepomeceno was subbed on and got himself a goal within a couple of minutes when Green surged forward and found the ex-Oldham man 20 yards from goal and his curling shot gave Bycroft no chance and restored the two goal advantage.

A free kick broke to King on the right side of the penalty area and his superb low cross was turned home by Tom Bradbury at the back post.

The fifth goal soon followed with Jack Senior who had replaced Danny Williams surged forward on the left side and his superb cross found Jake Hyde who headed home his 2nd goal in an Halifax shirt.

Town were not finished and looked for more goals with Hyde almost getting on the end of another Senior cross. 6 points and 10 goals in 3 days.

There was plenty of reaction as a fan runs onto the pitch and does cartwheels during the National League match…
