Published Add your comment

The FA Cup is renowned for its plethora of shocks and entertainment; it never fails to grip the viewer. Although the third round doesn’t commence till the New Year, the English football magic has already graced the qualifying rounds that commence as early as September.

One particularly magical moment came in the form of a goal so jaw dropping it has graced the home pages of the biggest sporting news sites. Only hours after the net rippled, Scott Davies was propelled into footballing stardom.

An ex-Republic of Ireland under 21s international, Davies now resides under the employment of National League South side Wealdstone FC. This season’s FA Cup has seen the Stones reach the fourth qualifying round and they marked the feat with an emphatic 5-1 win over Brockenhurst. However, there was little doubt that the highlight of the game came with the fifth goal that crowned the victory for Wealdstone.

Unbelievable strike

In the 90th-minute, after collecting the ball from a deft head-on by a teammate, Davies lined up an audacious 70-yard strike having seen the keeper off his line. Brockenhurst shot stopper Callum Maher couldn’t track back in time as the ball skipped off the turf and into the net.

The spectacular strike comes in the same year that Charlie Adam scored from his own half at Stamford Bridge, but even the Scot would admit he’d have to settle for silver. Davies’ invention has seen him rise to minor social media fame with his finish from a seemingly improbable range.

200 away fans made the trip to cheer on Wealdstone and they certainly weren’t left disappointed in a no nonsense romp that also saw Jefferson Louis, Johnny Wright, Tom Hamblin and an own goal on the score sheet. The victory and super finish see Wealdstone lock horns with Bognor Regis Town in the fourth qualifying fixture for a prestigious place in the first round come November.
