VIDEO: Hilarious moment match comes to standstill when ball is lost under advertising board

A hilarious moment yesterday saw a match come to standstill after the ball was lost and under an advertising board.

Partick Thistle and Dundee United fans watched on after the ball be kicked out of play for a throw-in, how it disappeared into a gap.

It seemed a new ball was no where be be seen, so the referee stopped the game in order for something to be sorted out.

Though the ballboy decided to voluntarily squeeze himself inside to retrieve the ball, only for him to come back out with it and see the player had just take the throw in with a new one.

The young lad appears to look rather surprised at not having to give him it back, check out the moment for yourself in the video below…

Dundee United, managed by former Milton Keynes Dons boss Robbie Neilson, were 1-0 down to Partick Thistle after 23 minutes following a Steven Saunders header.

On the 55th minute, Gary Caldwell’s Partick Thistle conceded an equaliser after Lawrence Shankland – who was linked with many EFL sides over the summer including Sunderland – got his 7th goal of the season.

Substitute Peter Pawlett then sealed the Terrors’ comeback which kept them top of the Scottish Championship.

Partick Thistle manager Gary Caldwell said after the game: “We were excellent in the first half and got ourselves in front and second half it was disappointing how we played in sitting off the game a little bit and allowed them back into the game.

“We allowed too many gaps. We didn’t mark in the box and we got punished for that. We lacked a little bit of bravery or a little bit of desire. We need to keep working on stepping forward and imposing our style on the game.”

Dundee United head coach Robbie Neilson said: “I actually thought we started the game all right. We passed the ball about and had a couple of chances. We gave away a very sloppy goal. That allowed Partick to sit in then I thought we answered a lot of questions at half-time.

“People were maybe looking at us saying, ‘are we going to crumble or come out fighting?’ And I think in the end we got the result we deserved.”


After watching back the hilarious moment, fans took to give their reaction via Twitter and it remind many of when they had to reach for the ball under cars as kids – see what they wrote on the next page.
