Lesser Spotted Ball Catcher

By NDODS    
With the EURO 2012 Football well and truly underway, some teams are clearly struggling in certain parts of the park, goal keepers being no exception. So I thought this little fella might me able to help a hand. I captured him in my garden a couple of weeks ago. He clearly had great control, but for him they are still the wrong side of the net.

A big thank you all for all you're caring and kind comments, pain is starting to subside, but I still have limited movement. I am off to see the Orthopaedic Consultant at Medway Hospital via my GP on Monday, hopefully he/she shall be able to put and end to this problem. Have a great day, Regards Nathan

You have an eye for tallent as well as for a good shot.
The way this one is keeping his eye on the ball as he sizes up the net speaks volumes as to his tallent in the game.

Prayers things go well on Monday. And thank you for your lovely comments on my Anemone.
