Video: Wes Hoolahan rolls back the years with vintage ‘Wessi’ goal for Cambridge

Posted by

He may be on the downward edge of his lengthy career but Irish football legend Wes Hoolahan is still ripping it up in League Two.

Wes Hoolahan or ‘Wessi’ as he’s affectionally known by Irish football fans has proven that age is only a number after the 38-year-old scored his fourth goal of the season last Saturday.

Hoolahan currently plays for Cambridge United who proudly sit top of League 2, three points clear of Carlisle.

The Irishman’s fourth goal came in a 3-1 victory over Crawley and it was vintage Hoolahan.

The former Ireland international was the third scorer in Cambridge’s victory and it wasn’t even the best goal.

The pick of the bunch came from United right-back Kyle Knoyle who hammered home from the edge of the box to give the home side a 2-1 advantage going into the break.

Hoolahan’s goal came much later on in the game in the 85th minute when he picked the ball up on the edge of the box before calmly slotting home across the keeper.

The Dubliner showed his trademark composure as he set himself up before registering his fourth goal of the season for the table toppers.
