Watch as defender scores from inside his own half...with a HEADER

Scoring from inside your own half is a rarity in football, but even rarer is doing so with your head.

Step forward Basford United defender Stefan Galinski, who in Tuesday night's fixture away at FC United of Manchester, saw his headed clearance bounce over the home side's stranded goalkeeper and roll into the net.

Galinksi, formerly a player with clubs including Corby Town, Alfreton Town and Boston United, could hardly contain his delight at seeing the ball drop into the net.

Basford went on to win the NPL Premier Division game 3-1, the other goals not quite as unusual as this one.
