Glentoran raise the bar for goalkeepers everywhere after unbelievable goal
Sun in the eyes.
The Brandywell has seen some magic moments over the years, but most of the home fans would have been happier not seeing this.
Glentoran took the lead over hosts Institute in Derry, this afternoon, when their goalkeeper, Elliott Morris scored from a free-kick from inside his own half.
10 minutes into the game and Morris sought to pump the ball up to the Glentoran forwards. Only he could tell you whether he spotted Martin Gallagher long off his goal-line.
As it was, Morris gave it oomph and his kick, from all of 80 yards out, deceived the back-pedalling Gallagher to put his side 1-0 up.
The goalie set off up the sideline, wheeling his arms in celebration, before being chased down by his teammates.
The last goalkeeper to score in the Premiership was @johnconnoly18 who converted an 83rd minute penalty for @cliftonvillefc against @OfficialBlues at Solitude on 10th Dec 2010 #DanskeBankPrem #BBCIrishPrem

That low-lying January sun can be a killer.
