A Sunday league soccer game was held up after a snake slithered onto the pitch.
It made the ref delay the starting whistle in Sutton St James FC's clash with Shouldham, in the King's Lynn and District Sunday League, until it could be removed.
One league official tweeted: 'Delay in the @SSJFC V @ShouldhamFC game due to snake on the pitch. Welcome to the Fens.'
Sutton St James FC added: 'Delay in play as the resident snake handler removes a snake from the pitch.'
While they managed to give the reptile the red card, Sutton St James didn't manage to win the game as the Norfolk side quickly addered to their first goal.
