Having arrived somewhat early for the C’s game I was fortunate enough to watch some of the D’s game. Three one up when I arrived the Whites were firmly on the back foot. What happened next goes down in Whites, if not all goalkeeping history.
A deep cross from the Unley left was met on the penalty spot by the unmarked Unley striker with a firm downward header to the man they call ‘Horse’ right hand side. Certain goal the Unley striker thought. ‘Horse’ had other ideas and flung himself away to his right at full stretch.
‘Horse’ was all over it like a fat bird at an all you can eat buffet and got the big right hand to it to push it away for a corner. Many in the crowd likened it to the great Gordon Banks save from Pele in the 1970’s World Cup.
