Peter Bore earned Boston United a point against Skrill North favourites AFC Telford United with a 35-yard screamer.
His effort had swerve and dip and gave Bucks stopper Ryan Young no chance at all... but the defender says he ‘just hit it’.
“It was possibly the best strike I’ve ever shot,” said the right back.
“I just saw Rossy (Ian Ross) switch it. I had a shot on Saturday against Stockport and that trickled wide.
“That went through my mind, but then I thought ‘nah, I’m just going to hit it.’
“Luckily, it went in. But if you don’t shoot you don’t score do you?”
“It was just power. I thought ‘get my technique right and just hit it’ - and it’s gone into the back of the net.”
The 42nd minute goal - which cancelled out Sean Clancy’s penalty - sent the home fans wild.
But for those in amber and black, it was nice to finally be able to celebrate a strike from Bore.
Before last night he was probably best known as the youngster who marked his debut in senior football by scoring twice as Boston were beaten 3-2 by Grimsby Town back in 2006.
In the reverse fixture that season, Bore marked his first match at York Street with his first professional hat-trick as the Mariners won 6-0.
“It’s nice to get the goal, but I thought the boys were great today,” Bore added.
“We went at them fully attacking and we were unlucky.
“We could have won it but we could have lost it as well. They had their chances.”
Manager Dennis Greene was full of praise for his summer signing, saying: “It wasn’t bad. Unbelieveable, he’s just got into space and smashed it.
“You can tell he was determined to hit the target.”
After a 4-1 victory at second-favourites Stockport County and a spirited 1-1 draw against favourites Telford, Greene hopes his squad are starting to prove any doubters wrong.
He continued: “If people say our side aren’t strong enough then now they can see that we are.
“If we can be physically strong against Telford we can be physically strong against anyone.
“You won’t find a team bigger than Telford, I think everyone is over six feet.
“We’ve had the opportunities. We had two bounce off the crossbar and a few shots which went wide.”
