'Unique' wind gifts goal to non-league side and causes chaos for corner taker

For AFC Fylde the windy conditions were both a blessing and a curse.

Strong winds created a goal and caused havoc with corners as two National League clubs had to play in what they described as "unique" conditions.

Video shows the moment AFC Fylde pulled ahead in their game at home to Hartlepool, after powerful gusts diverted a deflected cross onto the head of striker Danny Rowe.

"It was just a cross that was blocked and the wind picked up, and I just had to get a header on it," Rowe said after the game.

"It was a strange goal, but I'll take it."

While the wind was fortuitous for Rowe, his team-mate Nick Haughton had a tough time taking corners as the ball refused to stay in position.
