A club in the North West Counties Premier Division have found themselves with fans worldwide following a crazy 57 seconds in their league match v Widnes.
The video starts with Padiham at 3-1 down before pulling one back through Dominic Craig. The next 40 seconds has to be seen to be believed and there’s even room for Widnes to have a shot cleared off the line before Spencer Jordan equalizes.
The clip above has been watched over 80,000 times with former Real Madrid keeper, Iker Casillas, even sharing it.
We get the feeling that he was probably cringing at some of the goalkeeping though.
The Widnes manager, Steve Akrigg, told his clubs website: “From our point of view, it was sheer madness.
“For 90 minutes, it was a great performance but we completely threw it away in the last two minutes.
“It all comes down to game management. We were a bit naive in terms of being 3-1 up with a couple of minutes left and not seeing the game out, either by keeping possession in the corners or taking a chance when you get one”
The Cheshire club are clearly still recovering and they lost 1-0 to Abbey Hey in a less entertaining game last night.
Padiham, currently 9th in the table, are next in action on Saturday where they face Northwich Victoria away.
