Eccleshall keeper celebrates remarkable double

Eccleshall goalkeeper Brandon McEleny can look back on a day to remember in more ways than one, after an amazing double triumph at the weekend.

After being nominated as the Division One Goalkeeper of the Month for February after a series of good performances, Brandon rounded off a great weekend in grand style by scoring the equalising goal for his side against Irlam at Silver Street on Saturday.

Irlam had gone two goals ahead in the first half through a double from Gareth Mooney, but Josh Crofts reduced the deficit with a goal just after the hour for Eccleshall.

With the game moving into stoppage time, manager Steve Lloyd waved Brandon up the field when Eccleshall won a corner, and in true Roy of the Rovers style, when the ball came into the box Brandon rose to power a header into the top corner of the net to rescue a point for his side.

Eccleshall Secretary Jim Tunney said: "I checked with the referee's assessor after the game, and he told me that Brandon's goal came in the 95th minute. As soon as play restarted, the referee blew for full time, so you can't get any closer than that.

"When we won a corner, I must admit I never even noticed Brandon had come up for it, but when the ball came in to the penalty area, he was positioned around the penalty spot and sent a terrific header into the top corner of the net. A top notch centre forward would have been proud of it!

"Brandon has done really well for us since he came into the side a few months ago, but I think he'll be living on that goal for a long time to come".
