With their side in dire straits, supporters love seeing a shot-stopper venture out of their area and forward for a set piece at the death.

That's what Dominic Jolly did for Lea United in the 93rd minute of their big local derby with Ribbleton Warriors in the Lancashire Sunday League.

United were 3-2 down at Moor Park on Sunday when Jolly came forward for a last-minute corner and produced a fine overhead kick, producing scenes of jubilation on the sidelines in the shadow of Deepdale.

He added: "Big GK coming up trumps bagging last min for a draw #gkunion."

With the goal being scored on the eve of transfer deadline day, all eyes are now on whether Jolly gets his big move before 11pm tonight...
