Goalkeeper scores 80-yard goal

Montgomery Town FC goalie Steve Goodwin scores a wonder-goal from the edge of his own penalty area. Fabulous, one in a billion strike (and goes straight in unlike Paul Robinson’s punt that bounced once in front of Ben Foster before going in) and proof that football is about taking your chances (if the opposition keeper had caught that ball, it would have been classified as a waste of a free kick).

The upside? Goodwin and Montgomery Town get some fame (thanks to a local politician). The downside? Goodwin ruins everything with his goal celebration (what, no sliding, no fist pumping, no ripping your shirt off?), which just goes on to show that it’s crowds and TV that bring out the real entertainers in us.
