Wind-assisted goals are somewhat of a rare occurrence, although their have been a few classics over the years, particularly when the treacherous winter weather starts to kick in around the globe. There’s an early contender this season and it’s pretty damn special.
During Romford vs Thurrock on Tuesday night, ‘Storm Barney’ made an appearance, and boy was it special. When Thurrock defender Kamari Duncan booted the ball into the air near the halfway line, it got caught up in the vicious wind and ended up bouncing over his own goalkeeper and into the net. Some way to score an own goal, that.
