Ashton does a Jennings (sort of…)

FC United goalkeeper Sam Ashton scored after just three minutes in FC’s four nil victory over Retford. Click here [thanks Neil] to see Sam’s goal plus those scored by Jerome Wright, Matty Wolfenden and Jake Cottrell.

Sam was ten yards off his own goaline when he struck the ball and in typically modest style he is claiming that the goal was no fluke:

“It was really windy, Scott McManus passed the ball back and I just wanted to get something on it because the pitch was awful. Then after I hit it I thought, ’That’s going in that!’

“Their keeper had come out to clear the ball but it bounced over his head and rolled into the empty net.

“The lads are telling me it was a fluke but it wasn’t – I meant it”.

On the way back to Manchester Sam was pushing for a goal bonus.
