David Beckham was strangely absent from the ‘Class of 92’ purchase of Salford City FC in 2014.
But the non-league side clearly do not need the former England captain when they have Joe Poole, who did his best Beckham impression with this unbelievable 50-yard effort against Southport on Saturday.
Poole’s moment of magic – similar to Beckham’s famous goal against Wimbledon in 1996 – earned Salford a 1-0 win which sees them reach the first round proper of the FA Cup for the first time.
As a reward, the club owned by Manchester United legends Gary and Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, will host League Two outfit Notts County on the weekend of December 7.
What about a possible third-round tie against United at Old Trafford? That would test some allegiances!
