The boys heard a "soft thudding" on the artificial pitch - then looked up to see dozens of worms plummeting from the sky.
David, 26, said he and other teachers at Galashiels Academy were baffled by the incident.
And they later found more worms spread across a school tennis court almost 100 yards from the pitch. He said: "We started hearing this wee thudding noise. There were about 20 worms on the ground.
School staff eventually found about 120 worms. It is believed that a freak weather event lifted the worms along with water from a nearby river. The story was first reported on April first, but there is of yet no indication that it was an April Fool. Link -via Fortean Times
