The FA Cup

This goal literally has everything we could ever want!

Goalkeepers have a bit of reputation for being a little crazy and, in some cases, very attacking. We're thinking of the likes of Jose Chilavert and Rogerio Ceni.

Those two have banged in loads of goals over the years despite being in between the sticks, which is all very impressive, but most of them came from the penalty spot of free-kicks.

However, we reckon we might have found a goalkeeper with genuine attacking credentials after his incredible and vital goal for Holbeach United in the second round of qualifying for the FA Cup.

Holbeach were losing 1-0 to Worcester City when they managed to get a free-kick in the 94th minute and decided to send their goalkeeper Ricky Drury up.

And, incredibly, Drury managed to connect with the incoming delivery with an absolutely perfectly timed overhead kick which flew into the bottom corner and sent all of the Holbeach team into absolute pandemonium! 

We've seen some decent goals from 'keepers over the years but Drury's effort is by far our favourite since Jimmy Class saved Carlisle United from relegation.
