[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Visiting Wycombe led Gillingham 1-0 in stoppage time when a bizarre scene unfolded at Priestfield Stadium. A young fan hurled himself at Wanderers goalkeeper Jordan Archer as he was preparing to take a goal kick.

This was the only game on Monday in any of England’s top four divisions, so this fourth division incident is bound to get coverage. While this 1-0 loss actually knocked promotion hopeful Gilligham from first to second in League Two.

The clip itself is short without much context, and the youngster is airborne at an awkward angle almost immediately, colliding with the completely unaware Archer. Fortunately security tosses him down like a sack of potatoes before the 19-year-old on loan from Tottenham can get his angry mitts on him. We do know Archer wasn’t hurt, the youngster was held, and the FA will investigate this.

A wild scene indeed. …
