VIDEO: Goalkeeper goes viral after scoring second late equaliser this season

Guisborough Town goalkeeper Jordan Nixon has gone viral after scoring not just one, but two late equalisers.

The former Middlesbrough youth player first did so in the 94th minute to give his side an FA Cup replay against Newton Aycliffe after an exciting 3-3 draw.

With seconds left on the clock, the keeper slammed home a loose ball with the last kick of the game.

A view of that moment below…

It isn’t the first time he’s scored a late equaliser, after Nixon scored in the 92nd minute during his side’s 3-3 draw against Hebburn Town this week.

The club also got that on video…

Joking to BBC Tees: “I might be the first ever goalkeeper to have a goal bonus in my contract.”

“I tried to go up a bit earlier for a corner and I looked at the bench, but I didn’t get the approval.

“But I was already at the halfway line and it went out again, so I just started going up.

“It went into the box, it was headed towards me and I and volleyed it into the corner. If you asked me to do it again I probably wouldn’t be able to.”

“I’m on par with Harry Kane at the minute, so if I’m breathing down his neck by the end of the season I’m not far off my target.”

 

His goals certainly got the attention of the football world, many also took to tweet the keeper – check out those tweets on the next page.
