Former Blue Carson Nets Greatest Own Goal
Wednesday, 14th Apr 2021 14:15

Former Town midfielder Josh Carson scored what’s being hailed as the best own goal of all-time as his current side Coleraine drew 2-2 away against Glentoran at the Oval, Belfast in the Irish Premiership last night.

The 27-year-old looped over his own keeper from 25 yards to deny his own side all three points.

Four-times-capped Northern Ireland international Carson came through the youth system at Town and made 18 starts and 15 sub appearances for the Blues, scoring five times at the right end, before departing for York City in 2013.

The own goal that Mick Stockwell scored here at around 1:10 is also up there as one of the best own goals I've seen

Still not as good as the Jamie Pollock one. But, Josh, what can we say?—you learnt from the best :-)

TBF he would probably get in this crap team now.

That’s a lot further out than 25 yards, isn’t it?

I can't believe he is only 27. Seems a lifetime ago he was playing for Town.

He had a decent goal scoring record for a midfielder but I don't remember him at all!

Best own goal? Not a chance, four words only needed to reply:

Robert, Ullathorne, Gary and Megson.

For those who haven't seen it at least 10,000 times ;)

I wish our current lot would have a shot on goal from that far out

Get our opposition to sign him up. Only chance of a goal we'll see this side of summer transfers.

@SickParrot - The only reason I remember him is because when he was still at Town I met him in the smoking area at Vodka Revolutions in Town one night. He spoke to me but he was all flustered looking for his girlfriend, then he asked me if he could pinch a fag! haha
