That’s one way to shut him up.

Players love few things better than sticking it to the doubters in the crowd and that’s as true in amateur football at all levels as it is at the very top of the world game.

Mark Bushell got the chance to do just that at a Make A Wish Charity game for Ross Cummins in Dublin recently, sending a ferocious strike to the top corner from the halfway line seconds after his methods had been questioned by a heckler in the crowd (we’re led to believe it was Gerry Reid) who wasn’t shy in letting his feelings be known.
