ANOTHER South Shields FC wondergoal! See the latest strike which is clocking up thousands of hits

Supporters of South Shields FC have been treated to another wonder goal - just over three months after Warren Byrne's incredible strike went global.

David Foley netted a stunning chip from distance in the Mariners' pre-season friendly against Crook Town on Tuesday.

The forward - who remains the youngest player in Hartlepool United's history - collected a loose pass about 30 yards away from goal, looked up and then beat the goalkeeper with a stunning chip.

The goal was posted online by the club yesterday, and has so far been watched more than 7,000 times on its internal Facebook page.

Shields are no strangers to tremendous goals, with Byrne's strike against Tow Law in April having been viewed well over 5million times online.

The goal also won the striker the Budweiser Dream Goal award - securing a grant of £50,000 for the Mariners - and saw him pick up much acclaim, including an appearance on Sky Sports show Soccer AM, a landslide victory in CNN's Goal of the Week contest and appearances on TV channels and in newspapers.

David, from South Shields, counts his goal on Tuesday as his best so far for the club.

The 29-year-old joined the Mariners last May following an impressive professional career which included spells at Hartlepool, Carribbean-based side Puerto Rico Islanders and Fort Lauderdale Strikers, in Florida.

At Hartlepool, he became their youngest-ever player (aged 16 years and 105 days) in 2003, and scored some superb goals, including a stunning long-range strike at Victoria Park to seal a 2-0 FA Cup giant-killing over Premier League side Stoke City.

David still classes that as his best goal to date, but was delighted with his latest effort, which came less than a week after a similarly audacious effort against Seaham Red Star hit the crossbar.

He said: "I'd say it was probably my best goal for Shields so far.

"It's not quite as good as some others I've scored, for example for Hartlepool in the FA Cup against Stoke, but hopefully there are a lot more to come.

"I saw the defender was going to pass the ball inside, so I read his pass and knew the keeper was off his line.

"That's something I always look for, as keepers tend to stand off their lines a lot.

"Then I just took a touch out of my feet and connected well with the ball, and luckily it went in as last week I tried it and hit the bar!"

David was part of the Shields team which won the Northern League Division Two title last season.

Tomorrow (Friday), the club will launch its new away kit in a special, free-to-attend event at its Mariners Park home, in Shaftesbury Avenue.

As well as the kit launch, there will be a question and answer session with selected players and staff, and a casino event.

All are welcome, and the event starts at 7pm.
