Johan Cruyff, Thierry Henry and er, Theo Walcott are just some of the all-time greats to don the no.14 shirt. Well you can add the name of Warren Byrne to that list, after the South Shields striker produced a moment of exquisite genius in his side’s 3-0 Northern League Division Two win against the tongue-twisting Tow Law Town.
Latching on to a defensive header on the edge of the opposition box, Byrne controlled the ball with a deft touch, before flicking it over his head and firing home an unstoppable left-foot cracker…
Magnificent stuff from the portly genius. The win saw the already promoted South Shields go 14 points clear at the top of the table, with Tow Law Town back in 14th.
