Sunday League groundsmen everywhere can feel much better about their work when they see these efforts of a Romanian counterpart.

Lining the pitch requires concentration, and in most cases a great deal of experience, but even first-timers might feel they would make a better fist of it than one particular groundskeeper in Eastern Europe.

No matter what he was at the night before, the markings left a huge amount to be desired, with one a Sunday League player taking pictures as evidence to illustrate just how shoddy a job was carried out.

The excuse reported by is that the groundsman for the club in question had spent all morning drinking in the local bar and hence the haphazard effort. It still barely covers as justifiable when you see the aftermath.

If ever a picture painted a thousand words.
