Hungerford Town striker Sol Wanjau-Smith hit the headlines this week with a strike reminiscent of Dave Tarpey against Dartford or Paul Gascoigne against Scotland.

Unfortunately for the Crusaders young star though, the goal was ruled out – one of two that were on the night, something that frustrated manager Danny Robinson in the post match interview who said: “Tough to take. Two goals chalked off, the second one Sol is a yard onside, if not more.”

That doesn’t mean though we can’t celebrate it especially as Hungerford caught the goal in the 1-0 defeat to Hemel Hempstead Town on camera for posterity.

21-year-old Wanjau-Smith joined Hungerford in the summer from Southern League South Division One side Slimbridge where he impressed over a couple of seasons with the Gloucestershire side.

The forward is a former Bristol City and Bristol Rovers youngster who joined Slimbridge after impressing for Cribbs in the Western League.

Wanjau-Smith isn’t the only headliner filling column inches at Bulpit Lane, The Crusaders Four For A Score promotion – ticket, programme, burger and beer – has made the National press and will be available again at the National League South fixture on Saturday against Ebbsfleet United.
