Liam Vaughan makes double penalty save in ‘crazy’ Suburban League match

Liam Vaughan makes double penalty save in ‘crazy’ Suburban League match

Binfield Reserves goalkeeper Liam Vaughan saved two of four penalties in Saturday’s Suburban Football League Premier Division tie at home to Maidenhead United.

The key thing here.. it wasn’t a penalty shoot out.

Vaughan explained on his instagram page that ‘Maidenhead had 4 penalties in about 15 minutes, happy with saving 2 but should have saved 3!’

The Moles won the match 4-3 at Hill Farm Lane thanks to doubles from Mo Davies and Liam Whyte but the win in a match full of incident was all the more remarkable as Ellis Woods side did it with 10-men after Matt Davies was sent off.
