White witch scores on pitch for Frome
LONDON (Reuters) - A white witch who performed a ritual to remove a curse from the pitch of minor league side Frome Town says she has already helped the team improve their luck.

Frome, in Somerset, have struggled to score goals at home this season but got one in a 2-1 defeat by rivals Paulton Rovers on Tuesday.

White witch Titania Hardie, who was called in because the club believed their playing surface was cursed, said her ritual had helped the team in the first half, but that their focus and drive had "evaporated" after halftime.

"I might do pep talks, a cleansing ritual or maybe some kind of charm so they can have a whole good match, not half a good match," she said.

Hardie believes the team's inability to perform consistently at home could lie in the dressing room where a block of negativity had built up.

Club spokesman Ian Pearce said Hardie's efforts had already galvanised the players.

"She walked on to the pitch and waved her hands around and then she talked to the players and gave them confidence. She told them to think there was a white circle around them," he said.

"We're quite successful as a team and have scored goals by the dozen but can't score goals at home, so we thought maybe there is a curse on the pitch."
