Big Jon Parkin’s sweet 50-yard strike must win goal of the weekend

Wonder if this one impressed Michael Owen?

What do David Beckham, Charlie Adam and Jon Parkin have in common?

They can all really hit a football.

Big Jon added his named to an illustrious list of players who have bagged themselves a goal from around the half-way line when he scored this sweet strike for Forest Green Rovers against Macclesfield.

Yes, it was just inside the Macclesfield half, but it really was a wonderstrike to mark his 28th goal of the season.

What a way to help your team to a 3-1 win – by pulling a Charlie Adam (as it’s now called).

Michael Owen might not be impressed, but JOE sure as hell is.

It’s going to take something pretty special to beat this finish this weekend.
