A missed penalty by goalkeeper Gary Hickman could not prevent AFC DOWHAN strolling to a 4-1 victory over bottom-of-the-table Borussia TNF in Senior Division Three of the Notts Sunday Morning League.

According to Dowhan boss Paul Prewett, Hickman’s kick “not only flew eight feet over the bar but also nearly hit a dog-walker in a different postcode!”

Thankfully, the Hucknall side were already 3-1 up after a 25-yard rocket from Aaron Cotterill, a fine finish by Jake Rodgers and a succesfully converted spot-kick by Daniel Bernard.

The scoring was completed by substitute Dean North, who fired a loose ball into the roof of the net.
