First team

Cherries' four goalscoring 'keepers


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Josh Clarke's amazing goal for the youth team on Saturday sees him join an impressive array of goalscoring goalkeepers currently with the Cherries.

The teenager's sublime touch and lobbed finish saved the under-18s' two-year unbeaten home record in the 1-1 draw with Millwall on Saturday.

Clarke's strike also pushes him into the company of a world-record holder, a never-to-be-forgetton last-gasp saviour and a matchwinning debutant.

Asmir Begovic 

In November 2013 Southampton kicked off away at Stoke City - and conceded 13 seconds later as Asmir Begovic inked his name in the Guinness World Records book with a long-range opener.

The 'keeper's strike was measured as coming from 91.9m (301ft 6in), catching the wind, bouncing up and flying up and over future Cherries team-mate Artur Boruc, Begovic becoming at the time the fifth goalie to net in the Premier League.

After finding himself in the 2014 edition of the book, Begovic said: "I feel amazing to be honoured in this way and as a goalkeeper I didn't expect this to happen, not for this type of record anyway, I will take it though and enjoy it."

Mark Travers

You're 18, you're making your debut on loan and it's 2-2 in the closing moments... Step forward Mark Travers.

“I had a look up first time and saw the goalkeeper on about his 18-yard box," said the Cherries 'keeper at the time, back in August 2017.

“I had another think about it and said ‘right I’ll give it a go’. I ended up hitting it quite well and it ended up going in, so I was pleased.”

The goal helped Weymouth beat Bishop’s Stortford 3-2 in a dramatic Southern Premier League match, and with Travers later keeping a clean sheet and winning the man of the match award on his first Premier League appearance, the Ireland international clearly enjoys a debut.

And of course... Jimmy Glass

When you're boots are displayed in the National Football Museum and you're effort's been named number 15 of 20 Goals That Shook the World it's fair to see that you've made an impact on the beautiful game.

That's just what former Cherries 'keeper and the club's current player liaison officer Jimmy Glass did in May 1999.

In case you've been asleep for two decades or are frightfully young, here's what happened.

With ten second of the final match of the 1998/99 season remaining, Carlisle United were level with Plymouth Argyle and desperately needed a winner to prevent themselves from dropping out of the Football League.

Waved forwards by manager Nigel Pearson, Glass came up from his own penalty area. Over to BBC Radio Cumbria commentator Derek Lacey:

"And here comes Jimmy Glass! Carlisle United goalkeeper Jimmy Glass is coming up for the kick – everyone is going up... There isn't one player in the Carlisle half!

"Well, well... And the corner kick comes in... And... The goalkeeper's punch... Oh... Jimmy Glass! Jimmy Glass! Jimmy Glass, the goalkeeper, has scored a goal for Carlisle United! There's a pitch invasion! There is a pitch invasion!"

Arise a relegation-saving hero to end all heroes.
