The team hopped in the farmer's trailer and headed to the nearest pub
Bamber Bridge FC of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League suffered a bit of a hiccup with their coach on the weekend, but they managed to flag down a rather unusual lift.
After earning a point against Scarborough Athletic in their match on Saturday, the Bridge were travelling back when their bus broke down.
Fearing a rather long night, given that they were in a remote enough road and there wasn't a taxi in sight, one of their players pulled it out of the bag as he managed to flag down a tractor and a trailer which was big enough to fit the players, the manager and a few supporters.
The team seemed to be taking it in good spirits anyway, as they hopped into the trailer, which took them to the nearest town...and the nearest pub.

Coach broken down?, no taxis for miles ? No problem, flag down a tractor and get to the pub ! pic.twitter.com/Me3fvhS67j— Alan Bateson (@Alan_Bateson) 14 August 2016
Bamber Birdge's next game is against Colne FC, but they are more than likely going to be traveling to it by coach again.
