This spectacular goal was scored by Montgomery Town keeper Steve Goodwin in the far from prestigious Division 2 JT Hughes Montgomeryshire League. But thanks to the wonders of mobile phone technology and YouTube the goal was captured and is now available for all to see. Goodwin took a free-kick from the edge of his own penalty area which sailed over his opposite number and into the net.
Montgomery MP and Cheeky Girl botherer, Lembit Opik, has tabled a motion in the House of Commons praising the strike as “one of the greatest and most spectacular goals scored in the history of British football”.
