The pirate-hat goal celebration

Over the years we have seen a huge variety of goal celebrations from the Klinsmann dive, to the Julius Aghahowa backflip, all the way through to Facundo Sava’s Zorro-mask. With such an array of options, it’ is extremely rare to see something unique, yet Chipstead’s Daryl Coleman rose to the challenge when he scored in the FA Cup against Torquay last weekend.

Ryman League Chipstead were outplayed by their Conference opponents, losing the match 4-1 as they missed out on being in the hat for round one of the FA Cup. But 19-year-old Daryl Coleman had a moment to savour, scoring an absolute blinder of a free-kick which rocketed into the top corner from 30-yards out.

But that was only the beginning. After seeing the ball rip into the back of the net the tubby number six ran straight over to the bench to collect a pirate hat, which the centre half then donned as he forced his teammates to chase him in a scene straight out of a Benny Hill sketch.

Sadly the ref failed to see the humour and booked Coleman for his troubles.
