National League South player scores goal with incredible ‘scoop shot’

Eastbourne Borough midfielder Dominic Hutchinson has bagged one of the season’s best goals in a National League South game.

The last 12 months have been jam-packed with unbelievable finishes. Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah shocked fans with his stunning strike against Watford, Tottenham’s Erik Lamela left Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno helpless with a silky rabona, and Patrik Schick’s long-range effort for Czech Republic helped to put Scotland to the sword at Euro 2020.

However, the best goals don’t always come in the biggest games. Sometimes the most mesmerising moments in football go unnoticed due to the lack of publicity at the bottom of the pyramid. But there’s no way we’re letting this magical scoop goal fade into the abyss.

This National League South finish will blow your socks off

On February 8, Eastbourne Borough hosted Tonbridge Angels in a National League South fixture. The away side struck early, but Eastbourne hit back just four minutes later—and what a goal it was.

Dominic Hutchinson utilised his startling pace to dribble down the wing before he tumbled to the floor. But his mission wasn’t over yet.

He scooped the ball up and struck it towards the goal. In a spell-bounding piece of play, the youngster found the back of the net from the acutest of angles. The superb equaliser sent the crowd and the commentator into raptures, unable to believe what they had just seen.

Eastbourne capitalised on their momentum to score twice more to win the game 3-1. Despite their glowing start, Tonbridge travelled home disappointed and in 18th place.

Hutchinson signed for the club on loan from Premier League side Watford earlier this season.

The slick 20-year-old, who has scored six goals in nineteen appearances this campaign, is certainly making people stand up and take notice.
