Former Hammer scores 100-yard goal [video]

Former Hammer Kieran Sadlier scored one of the strangest goals you're ever likely to see when featuring for his current club at the weekend.

The 23-year-old Irish youth international spent a decade at West Ham prior to leaving the club in 2015, since when he has featured for various clubs in cluding St Mirren, Peterborough Utd, Halifax Town (on loan) and Sligo Rovers.

However it was during an SSE Airtricity League match for his current club Cork City at St Patrick's Athletic last weekend that he wowed fans with an incredible goal from the edge of his OWN penalty box!

With the game already deep into added-on time at Richmond Park, and with the Rebel Army leading their hosts 2-1, St Patricks won a corner and opted to send their goalkeeper forward for the set piece.

However the resulting corner was cleared to the feet of Sadlier, who without any hesitation instantly smashed the ball towards the opposite end of the field - where the ball (eventually) rolled into an empty net, much to the joy of the City contingent!

And with St Pats pitch measuring 118 yards in length, Sadlier's incredible strike - which you may see below - was exactly 100 yards from goal - a particularly rare achivement in football.
