A YOUNG footballer from Northern Ireland has given Premier League players a run for their money – when it comes to goal celebrations.
Thomas Foster of Tullycarnet FC got himself on the scoresheet in his side’s recent under-13 cup final against Rosario.
The well-worked goal saw the 12-year-old direct the ball into an empty net after the opposing keeper failed to collect a cross, but while the finish was pretty standard, the celebration was inspired.

Cheeky, but we like it!
Thomas was also celebrating at full time, with his goal helping Tullycarnet to victory in the Under-13 Supplementary Cup Final at Bangor FC’s ground.
The competition is run by the South Belfast Youth Football League, which comprises teams from under-10 up to under-19 and is run by volunteers.
League chairman Robert Johnston described Thomas as ‘lightning fast’, adding that the talented forward is in contention to make their league select team this year.
If he has the skills to match the celebrations, he’ll go far!
