Amazing goal: Goalkeeper Sam scores from 107-yards - VIDEO

HAVE you ever been at a football match when this happens?

Few people have seen a goalkeeper score, from the opposite end, in live action.

But more than 500 witnessed it last Saturday at non league Retford United.

In the opening minutes of the game against FC United of Manchester keeper Sam Ashton swung his boot at a back-pass and saw the strong wind assist it into the opposition net.

Poor old Retford United.

It turned out to be the first of four unanswered goals against the bottom of the league Nottinghamshire side.
