Everyone has that one moment where they play well beyond their abilities, which turns into an anecdote for countless pub trips. Trust me, I’ve got my own, but that’s a story for another day.
That is what has happened to Clevedon Town AFC’s Oli Babington, who might just have scored goal of the season – not just in non-league, but in the entire English footballing pyramid.
As a teammate’s attempted pass is intercepted and balloons into the air, Babington – who appears to be playing at right-back – cannot resist the chance to put his laces through the ball.
When the ball reaches its peak altitude, a voice in the crowd encapsulates the viewing experience with an exclamation of “Oh, hello.”
The ball dips at the perfect moment, leaving the goalkeeper helpless to prevent the ball from nestling into the net behind him.
