21st August 2004. Exhibition game at Northampton Baloon Festival. Nene Valley Hybrids Vs. Coventry Jaguars. Scheduled for a 7pm kick off, the game didn't actually start until 8:15 when various balloons had been launched from the field. In failing light and floodlights which were darker on than off, Nene Valley won the toss and received and drove down the field and scored on their opening drive, the two point conversion was good. On the ensuing kick off, a Coventry player broke his ankle and, in the gathering gloom, the game was abandoned after 4 minutes and 10 seconds of play.
