WHEN a left-back runs on to a ball 40 yards from goal and looks set to shoot, most spectators expect to see his effort end up in row Z.
That was probably where most St Neots Town supporters imagined Rene Steer’s long-range effort would end up in their FA Cup Second Round Qualifying replay with Canvey Island on Tuesday night.
But the former Arsenal youngster instead smashed a wonder strike in off the underside of the bar to score what is an early frontrunner for goal of the season.
The 23-year-old’s thunderbolt draw the match level at 1-1 but the Saints suffered late heartbreak when Spencer Bellotti netted his second of the night in the 90th minute to put Canvey through.
St Neots return to Southern League Premier Division action this weekend and travel to tenth-placed Hungerford Town.
