Is This The Greatest Own Goal of All Time?
If you haven’t seen the bizarre own goal which went viral this week, you’re in for a treat!
It was landlords v tenants as Romford hosted Thurrock in Ryman League Division South on Tuesday November 17th. The match went ahead despite Storm Barney raging.
Twenty two minutes in, Thurrock defender Kamarl Duncan attempted a clearance from just inside his own half. The ball went high, but was caught by the seventy mile per hour winds and taken back towards his own goal. The ball bounced once and went over goalkeeper Rhys Madden and into the net.
Amazingly, just two minutes earlier, a similar thing almost happened! Madden took a goal kick, however it came straight back at him in the winds, but this time he was able to tip the ball over the bar. It proved to be a portent of things to come!
Here’s the most bizarre own goal you may ever see:
