Here’s Another Wheelchair Pitch Invasion (Video)

Last year we showed you footage of a man in a wheelchair invading the field during a Canadian Football League game.  It appears as though this trend has made its way across the Atlantic Ocean and is now being practiced on the football pitches in England.

The culprit in this case was 18 year-old Northampton Town supporter Derry Felton, who decided to celebrate his club’s victory over second division club Rotherham by rolling his motorized wheelchair out onto the field and scooting down the pitch at a snail’s pace.

Being a quadriplegic, Felton was unable to put up much of a fight when security arrived to escort him off the field, but that didn’t stop him from earning his five minutes of fame.
