Ross Clarke provides amazing assist after losing both his boots for Linfield

If you’ve ever played football on a rainy day, had your boot come off your foot and not been able to stop yourself before slamming your sock into the soaking wet earth, you’ll be able to sympathise with Linfield player Ross Clarke.

Unbelievable Jeff...

Not only did his mazy run during his side’s clash against Dungannon in the Irish Premiership result in him losing one boot, he lost both. As he jinxed past an opponent legs became tangled and in the blink of an eye Clarke was surging forward in his socks.

That’s not the good part though. Rather than giving up the ghost to see where he boots had flown off to, or quickly kicking the ball away to avoid the possibility of getting a set of studs to his bare feet, Clarke had the cool and composure to not only carry the ball forward, but also slot a defensive-splitting pass through to Ivan Sproule, who tucked it home with aplomb.

Piling on the misery

That’s right; Clarke managed to still provide an assist in his socks. The fact that the score was already 3-0 and Sproule’s goal only further heaped misery on an already battered Dungannon side is by the by.
