Proposing to your other half at half-time of a Checkatrade Trophy doesn't scream "romance" does it? Well, one chap decided to pop the question during the interval of Charlton's defeat vs AFC Wimbledon.
There they were on the pitch, with the missus blindfolded and tricked into thinking she was taking some sort of dizzy penalty after being spun around by her fella.
But on the third spin, with her sight visible again, the lad was on one knee with his ring glistening at her. She said yes and all so congratulations to the happy couple.
However, in an ideal world you probably wouldn't want your engagement to be confirmed at half-time of a Checkatrade Trophy defeat where there's hardly any fans there.
Ladies and gentleman...we have an on-pitch, half-time proposal! :scream:- Charlton Athletic FC (@CAFCofficial) September 4, 2018

Confuses everyone and it turns out to be an elaborate marriage proposal. She said yes. Congratulations to them. #CAFC pic.twitter.com/CodpaqU9fh

But there is a reason why it all happened at last night's game, it has emerged.
It's the second bizarre scene at the Valley, as just 11 days ago Addicks fans threw packets of crisps on the pitch in a protest at majority shareholder, Roland Duchâtele - who is is said to be so obsessed with cutting costs that an employee had to ask permission to eat crisps at their desk recently.
