VIDEO: Rocky Baptiste stars in 'Miss Of The Century!'
2009-12-01 - Added by
Non-League journeyman Rocky Baptiste is one of the more recognizable names in the lower echelons of the English game, and now he's even got his own YouTube video1
It has been produced to show off what is quite possibly the worst miss in football...EVER!
You may recognize the name yourself, as he was the winning goal scorer in Havant & Waterlooville's famous FA Cup victory over Swansea in 2008 which set up a mouthwatering tie at Anfield against Liverpool.
He also played in the 5-2 loss to the Reds, and now plies his trade at Ryman League side Harrow Borough, where he is apparently still regularly banging in the goals.
On Saturday he took part in an eight-goal thriller between Borough and Waltham Abbey, with his side coming out 5-3 winners.
Luckily Harrow had the match won when in injury time Baptiste intercepted a stray pass and ran through on goal, rounded the keeper and from one yard out decided to power the ball into the empty net...only to miss and smash the ball out for a throw in!
Just to remind you that it was a one off, the maker of the video also included a time when Baptiste did find the net in a previous game.
To his credit Baptiste gave permission for the video to be produced and shared with the whole world - it is even up as the main story on the Harrow Borough website!
