Dewsbury semi professional footballer Rob Bordman produced a wonder strike from around 45 yards out to help Ossett Town defeat Bradford City 2-0 in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday.

It capped a truly amazing day for the St John Fisher Sunday League player as the goal came just hours after the birth of his baby daughter Matilda (Tilly).
