A Merseyside football team has resorted to getting their pitch blessed in order to try and improve their luck. Marine FC have lost several players to injuries this season and have had the floodlights fail mid game on one occasion. They have also lost their last five matches. Father John Ealey was called in to remedy the situation. He has blessed the pitch, said a prayer and poured holy water on the turf. It will be interesting to see whether their fortunes improve as the season progresses.
