Boston United defender Scott Garner did his best impression of England striker Wayne Rooney on Saturday, sporting a new headguard.

Both have been sidelined with cuts to the head in recent weeks, and Garner followed Rooney’s lead by purchasing the protective head guard from the USA, the only place they are available, during the 3-3 draw with Harrogate Town.

While Rooney was wearing the guard to protect a gash in his head picked up in training for Manchester United, the Pilgrims defender cut his forehead in a clash during Boston’s 3-2 defeat to Bradford Park Avenue.
