Earthquake stops play at Port Talbot
Port Talbot went on to win 2-1.
Pitch invaders and the weather are common causes of play being held up, but in the Welsh League on Saturday, it was an earthquake.
Experts have said the quake – which shook parts of the UK on Saturday – was the biggest for a decade.
The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the epicentre was 20km (12 miles)
north of Swansea, with a 4.4 magnitude at a depth of 7.4km (4.6m).
Port Talbot is 10 miles from Swansea and the tremors were felt as the town’s football side faced Taff’s Well.

Port Talbot went on to win 2-1, before enjoying comments from their fans, which included “shaken not stirred” and “were your opponents quaking in their boots?”
We're your opponent's quaking in their boots? Lol. https://t.co/eXpFfSY3pQ— Audie Leon Murphy (@TumbleweedTexan) February 17, 2018
