Crawley Town FC Striker Plays In Goal For Over 50 Minutes


Crawley Town FC striker Matt Harrold played in goal for over 50 minutes in a 2 – 2 draw to MK Dons and picked up his first man of the match award for the former Bristol Rovers player.

Speaking with BBC Surrey after the game he said: “I’ve never played in goal before. Not even in training.

“I got pressured into it because everyone just looked at me and said ‘you’re big’. It’s a bit embarrassing because it’s my first man of the match for the club.”

“It was such a late goal to concede and we’re all devastated but we would have taken a point when I went in goal. “It was a bit like playing with 10 men because we dropped deep and they hung high balls up at me but I did enjoy it. “I felt comfortable in there in the second half after having a bit of a shocker when I first came on.”
