Callum Whitty’s clearance video earns SoccerAM call up

Callum Whitty’s clearance video earns SoccerAM call up

Bracknell Town defender Callum Whitty’s viral ‘clearance’ video has earned the versatile Robin a slot on Sky Sports SoccerAM show at the weekend.

The video by Mike Watkins shows Whitty attempting a clearance from team mate John Gray’s header but inadvertently see’s the ball cannon back in to his face and out for a throw in.

Here’s the original story.

It’s been a rollercoaster few weeks for Whitty, who saved a penalty in the FA Vase defeat at Croydon – stepping up between the sticks after Chris Grace was sent off.

We spoke to the videos producer Mike who said: “Of all the videos of amazing goals and try’s [we assume for rugby] I post some poor bugger doing this goes viral. B****y typical.

“The crowd loved it because he was laughing afterwards. Need more of this in football.”
