🎄 Christmas countdown: Day 13

Lee Holmes scores direct from a corner against Liverpool

13 December 2018

With St James Park packed out for an FA Cup third round tie against Liverpool, Lee Holmes stepped up to take a corner with the scores level at 1-1.

Having broken the record for being the youngest ever player to appear in the FA Cup when he played for Derby in the competition in 2003, Lee was then making headlines again as he whipped a cross over Adam Bogdan and in under the crossbar. 

It gave the Grecians a surprise 2-1 lead going into the break and although Liverpool came back to equalise late on it was a goal that will long be remembered at St James Park.
