    Hoping for a little help here. I am certain I remember a game from maybe 20 years or so ago that was televised (highlights) and the Referee blew for full time and after he had reached the tunnel had realised he'd blown too early.

    The result was that everyone went back onto the pitch and played a couple of extra minutes.

    What I remember most was an elevated camera on a gantry zoomed out to show fans walking away in their thousands whilst the game was restarting.

    Now I think it may have been FA Cup and possibly Barnsley but I can find absolutely no reference to it anywhere.

    Definitely happened as I can recall it but couldn’t tell you who was involved.

    That’s absolutely astonishing. Imagine that happens in the derby

    Can definitely remember this in the mid to late 70s, may have been an FA cup tie. Players came back on the pitch to play out the remaining time.
