A video captured the hilarious moment Thurrock FC defender Kamarl Duncan was near the halfway line when he attempted to play the ball up field when a sudden gust of wind had other ideas and lifted the ball into the air and blew it back towards keeper Rhys Madden — who watched helplessly as it bounced over his head and into the back of the net.

Tuesday's incredible own goal put opponents Romford FC 1-0 up while frustrated Thurrock first team manager Mark Stimson fumed because the referee refused to call off the match.
The Isthmian League match, at Thurrock's Ship Lane ground in Aveley, Essex, ended in a 1-1 draw — thanks to Storm Barney's passing wind.
