An alpaca stopped a football match in West Yorkshire, England.

According to television channel Sky News, the animal, named Oscar, galloped into the game between Carlton Athletic and Ilkley Town.

Claire Armstrong, Ilkley’s COVID-19 officer and wife of the first-team coach, filmed the invasion on her phone.

“Claire was on a call with someone and said ‘I’m so sorry, I’ve got to put the phone down, there’s an alpaca on the pitch,'” club chairman Richard Giles said.

Oscar appeared five minutes before half-time and brushed off attempts to usher it off the pitch for so long.

Thus, players were left feeling cold by the time play resumed.

“I’ve been watching football and playing football 40 years and never seen anything like this,” Giles added.

Despite the delay, Ilkley went on to win the game in Wakefield 2-0 with goals from Tom Fleming and Joe Chilaka.

With Oscar proving a lucky charm for the club, Giles shared they are now considering recruiting an alpaca as a mascot to spur the team on.

“There’s a farm closer to where we are that we plan to get in touch with,” Giles said.
