One of the best goals I have ever seen.

let me explain it

A ball was passed to him at about waist height, he controlled it and a player came to take it off him, he made it look like he was about to shoot, but instead flicked it over the guys head, knocked it down with his shoulder and leaped into the air for a half volley on his left foot.

Class, ass and composure.

Was brilliant to watch

I was well still am really good at reading the play.

Im not the quickest man on the field but ill be first to the ball 99 times out of 100.

Im also great at smashing people legally in tackles.

Do you still play Fluffy? Who for, without giving away your anonymity?

No unfortunatly CW.

My last games have been in the inter faculty sports competitions at uni where each year id start on the bench in the first game then never be taken off.

I have weekend work commitments on a regular basis which deprives me of the time to commit to a team. I feel i would be letting any side down missing 5+ games a year. This commitment is also the reason i didnt get to brookie until the penrith match this year.

I played 13 years for my local club in northern sydney.

I coach a North Sydney Bears Youth soccer team.

The facilities are nothing compared to what we had at Beacon Hill but still the teams a team of champs.

Your all welcome to come see us play in the indoor soccer nationals if you want. We are there because we have won our local indoor comp 2 years ina row and are now on top of the table again.

So all wlecome. Its in newcastle in january :D

If you cant play anymore, like me. Coach, its great fun

A lot further north than north sydney. Playing teams like lane cove and artarmon was a pain as they were always 8:30 on the coldest winter days.

Zap i dont play because i cannot make the pace, i wouldnt be playing prem 1 prob prem 2 or 3, but its the commitment i cant give. There is no way i could coach not turning up to 5+ games a year. Ill probably end up being a dad coach one day. lol

I was the further. The only team further than Mt Colah.

One of the youth games had more than 15 players that went to my school and the ref was also there. That was against Mt Colah.
