Well, yes. But I’m surprised they were able to.

Not sure who it is in the wall that didn't jump for their second? It seemed to go just over his head...


You get a better view of both their free kicks from behind the goal here.

There's a very complimentary comment about Southport under the video

Both free kicks were deflected off the wall.

Let’s hope Thursday training had a session on how to form a wall against free kicks

I can't see why we would prevent a club doing a freely available highlights package?

Good point- there’s 4 training issues here
1. Giving away needless free kicks in dangerous areas, especially when the recipient is maybe the most dangerous dead ball specialist in non league
2. Goalkeeper fails to get enough people in the wall despite it being a central and dangerous position
3. Goalkeepers request for a certain number in the wall is not heeded by players
4. Players in the wall fail to cover fall teeth and testicles and decide to bottle it by moving out of the way

All basics we need to learn (again!! ) otherwise it is or will be what it is 🙉🤣
