Remember a game around the early 2000's that was called off at half time due to high winds.

Oxford.

When we played against the wind for the 1st half and were drawing 0-0 and were due to come out for the 2nd half but Oxford were scared. We won the rematch either 2 or 3-1.

Northampton was called off on the same day for flying debris

I wasn't very happy about it and nor were other Stags fans at the time. The ref was a certain H Webb!

Many years ago we played Northampton on a very windy day. In the second half our goalie could hardly get the goal kicks out of the penalty box. The ref played on.

Kyrstian Pearce had to battle through the wind on a few occasions.

Bit more than wind for Krys, if he'd let rip he'd have followed through for sure :lol: . Could've been very messy.

I always remember a game in the fog . . I'm sure the only reason it didn't get called off was due to us being 3.0 and not long left . I think it was against Rochdale . When i got home I thought we won 3.0 but it ended 3.2 . The fog was that bad I couldn't see the opposite goal

Mazza scored against Wrexham because of the wind.

Stick a quid on Logan anytime scorer.....because there's no value in sticking it on Wycombe's keeper as Logan won't be off of his line for hin to do it :lol:

Didn't we have a Boxing Day game called off against Donny due to their roof being blown off?

I was at that Northampton v Huddersfield game that got abandoned.. The cobblers were winning 1 0, in the rematch Huddersfield won 1 0 which I still say to this day affected the play off positions and as stags fans remember a certain game against Huddersfield at the millineum stadium. Nature can work in mysterious ways.
