How about a football goalkeeper who can ward off all attacks on the four-post and score not one but four goals at the other end? Sounds interesting.

Steve Shergold is one such goalie. Steve netted four goal for his Sunday league team JS Bournemouth in a game for Sports A, thrashing Priory Quays reserves 17-0 after he felt out of the match.

He said: "I got bored and started going up for corners. I have no ball control and my team-mates were amazed I scored four”.

He however, ruled out changing position.

“But I will absolutely not be changing position. The other team saw the funny side at the end, but one or two stormed off," The Mirror quoted Steve as saying.

An investment banker by profession, Steve also scored two goals from penalties, taking his total tally to six.
