Gerry Ryan’s Golden Goal

Beginning his dribble half-way in his own half, this wonderful solo goal by Gerry Ryan against Manchester City in December 1979 was given the Match Weekly magazine diagrammatical treatment.

The game was a 4-1 triumph and Ryan’s solo effort was Brighton last ever goal of the 1970s.

“I thought about passing it on a couple of occasions, but the gaps seemed to keep opening up.”
