Trevor Sinclair scores stunning scissor-kick goal

Published Add your comment

Trevor Sinclair hung up his boots in 2008 - following a 19-year playing career - but on the evidence of his remarkable scissor-kick goal at the weekend, the former England winger could still be playing today.

Sinclair, who celebrated his 40th birthday in March, turned out for several clubs including QPR, West Ham and Manchester City during a reasonably successful playing career.

Along the way he scored some memorable goals - none more so than his sensational overhead kick for QPR against Barnsley in 1997, which can be viewed at the bottom this page - but his acrobatic effort in a special match organised to pay tribute to Manchester City kit man Les Chapman is up there with the best of them.

In front of 2,000 people, the retired winger rolled back the years by launching himself into the air, before connecting perfectly with a cross to volley the ball into the bottom corner of the net. The opposition goalkeeper didn't even move.

Sinclair's stunning effort and a Uwe Rosler brace earned City Old Boys a 3-0 half-time lead, but the Lee Chapman select XI fought back after the break and eventually won the match on penalties.
