Over in the Skrill Premier league (or Conference Premier for all you traditionalists) on Saturday, the match between Salisbury City and Chester had to be temporarily halted a few minutes from time due to a pitch invader.
Now, ordinarily this wouldn't be noteworthy; after all, plucky chancers are forever jumping over the advertising hoardings to waddle about on the pitch for a bit before being hauled off by the scruff of their necks.
However, it just so happened that this particular pitch invader had to fall from a height of around 15,000 feet before ending up on the turf at the Raymond McEnhill Stadium.
According to BBC Wiltshire, the rogue parachutist had been taking part in a charity skydive in the local area but had to make an emergency landing due to low cloud coverage.
Unable to reach the airfield where he was supposed to land, he altered his course for the nearest available plot of open land, which just so happened to be slap-bang in the middle of the Salisbury pitch.
Former Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham, who now plies his trade with Chester, took to Twitter after the game and duly called the parachutist disruption "the most bizarre" event he had ever seen on a football pitch.
"Half-way through the second half, out of nowhere a parachutist landed on the pitch," Higginbotham tweeted. "No idea where he was supposed to land but he hit the ground hard."
Joel Holt, a Salisbury fan present at the game, told BBC Wiltshire that the parachutist then "went round high-fiving people in the crowd" before being escorted away by stadium staff.
Well you would, wouldn't you?!
