George Barker has added his name to a star-studded list of players who have hit wonder goals from inside their own half.

He struck his team’s second goal of the Southern League premier division south game four minutes before half-time.

The home goalkeeper came out of his area to head clear and the ball bounced just inside the Borough half.

Barker immediately returned a stunning shot over his head and into the net.

The likes of David Beckham and Xabi Alonso have famously scored wonder goals of this ilk and Gosport player-manager Craig McAllister lauded Barker’s effort.

He said: ‘It is probably the best I've seen.

‘If anyone is going to score a goal like that then it will be George.

‘He has great technique and certainly has that kind of goal in his locker.’
