The club wrote: “Bailey’s wonder strike from 25 yards out would be shown for decades to come if it had been scored in the Premier League or a World Cup finals – it was that good.

“But the Royals’ defender gave a modest assessment of his goal and would rather have seen his team claim the three league points on offer in the game.”

Conor said to the club website: “The build up to the goal was really good – I’ve seen it back and there was about 20 passes and it would have been a great goal if we had scored from that but they cleared the ball.

“It bounced up perfect for me and then I hit that strike which I was over the moon about.

“I would rather have had the three points but being unbeaten at Christmas is some going and hopefully we will continue with that form into 2023!

“On to Monday now for the big El Creekio derby against Fareham!”

Portchester go on to add: “The goal against Moneyfields was Bailey’s third for the Royals in 73 appearances.

“However, this isn’t the first time Bailey has hit the headlines for scoring a worldie goal.

“He netted a free kick from the half way line for Moneyfields in the FA Cup against Worthing in 2018 and it was voted the best goal of the Third Qualifying Round in that season’s competition in a national poll.”
