The witches cast their "bad luck" spell at sunset.
A group of witches have cast a "bad luck" spell on Charlton Athletic and their manager Alan Curbishley.

The "cross-legged spell" was cast by Raquel Bailey - a wicca (white) witch and Yeovil Town supporter - at the stone circle at Ham Hill, Somerset.

She hopes the spell might make "something funny" happen to the team's legs when they approach the goalmouth.

"The spell is not evil, it's merely to help Yeovil in Saturday's FA cup game against Charlton," she said.
