Description of Career Highlight

Getting to play at Valley Parade for Bradford City’s academy against Leeds United and scoring what I would say my best goal to date. I took a cross field pass from the right back and flicked it over my head with my right foot then volleyed the ball from about 25 yards in to the net with my left foot.
