Great Goals Hall of Fame

Woodchip's finest strikes in 2000/01

The 2-1 win against British BioTech in the league cup, September 2000.

Goals came from debut boys Chris Beechey and Phil Nolan. Paul Walton's corner was met with a precision header by Beechey to make it 1-0. Late in extra-time, Phil Nolan grabbed the winner, drilling home a superb pass from Colin Donohue. These are the Reds' first two goals of the new campaign.

The 4-3 win against Roebuck FC in Division Four, September 2000.

Goals came from James Minion, Jon Goodgame, Phil Nolan and Alan Hillsdon.
Minion's was a driving effort from about 10 yards, Goodgame's was an opportunist Fowler-like strike after the ball came back off an upright, Nolan sweetly lobbed the keeper from 12 yards, while Hillsdon's was a typical defender's power-header from a corner. Another fine Woodchip win.

The 9-2 defeat away to Burford United in the Sam Waters Cup, October 2000.

Goals came from Ben Davies and Enda Brady. Davies' was a scorching 20 yard free-kick that stunned the home side, while Brady's was a Robbie Keane-style precision header straight out of the top drawer.

Goals that stand out from LAST season include:

10: BARRY WEEKS tried to cross a free-kick into the box away to the Prince of Wales in a league fixture. He stunned everyone, including himself, when the ball promptly flew into the roof of the net. Great goal from Barry, but sadly not intended. Hall of Fame rating 6 out of ten.

9: JOHNNY GOODGAME smashed home a brace against league leaders and eventual champions The Magdalen Arms at home. Controlling the ball superbly, Johnny smashed the ball past the helpless keeper. Great strike from Woodchip's nippy little ferret.

8: PHIL CUMMINS scored over 20 goals last season, but one of his most special was in a cup match at home to Cornerhouse. From more than 25 yards out he spotted their keeper off his line and chipped him. A stunning goal from Woodchip's top scorer.

7: DARREN ANDREWS doesn't get many so the fact that he tried to claim an own goal away to The Prince of Wales has to be mentioned. A blatant own goal, but D.A. decided that standing within four yards of the penalty area is good enough to claim the goal. Sad really.

6: ANDY NICKLESS scored the winner for Woodchip at home to Magdalen Arms. A flick-on from Enda Brady allowed him to rifle home an unstoppable shot from 20 yards to seal a famous 5-4 victory for the Reds.

5: LES NEWELL volleyed an absolute peach into the net from an acute angle in a cup match away to our favourite opposition Prince of Wales. He must have been a good 25 yards out on the left when he let fly.

4: ENDA BRADY got a bollocking off manager Darren Andrews for being lazy shortly before he was brought on in a home game against Prince of Wales. Then 45 seconds after he came on, he won the ball in midfield and played a neat one-two with Les Newell before drilling home.

3: PAUL CLAPTON blinding run from his own half played smart one-two with Phil Cummins knocked the ball over oncoming defenders head before chesting down & hammering past dazed Kennington keeper in 18-0 win.

2: Still to be decided.

1: Still to be decided - but probably one of Phil Cummins' stash of screamers!
