EXPERIENCED Alvechurch boss Ian Long described Danny Dubidat's sensational 86th minute winner against Sheffield FC this week as the best goal he'd ever seen.

The goal went viral on social media and has already amassed over one million hits, watch it here.

An impressed Long said: "It was a world beater, a truly wonderful goal. Danny has taken the goalkeeper's clearence kick on the volley, spun his man and then fired it from 20 yards out and the ball has gone into the net off the crossbar.

"Danny's then come racing over to the dug-out before sliding on his knees and everyone has piled in on top of him.

"I was more worried that somebody would get injured as there were some big lads piling in.

"We still had four minutes to play and I didn't want the players to lose concentration".

Long later revealed that he'd given Danny Dubidat a bit of half time rollicking. Long explained: "He wasn't holding the ball up well enough for my liking and I told him so.

"That's why I think he came running over to the bench after he'd scored to tell me so. I believe the goal could now be in line for some award.

"I've seen some great goals in my time. I was there when Ryan Giggs ran round half the Arsenal team to score, yet I can't think of a better goal than Danny's. It was out of this world.

"Sheffield were a far better side than their position suggested and the lead kept changing hands. It was important that we ground out the win."

Sheffield had taken an eighth minute lead through Julian Lawrence but Church came back to lead in the second half through Dubidat and a Tom Turton penalty.

But the outcome was thrown into doubt when Sheffield levelled again through Grant Ryan on 71 minutes before Dubidat popped up with his sensational strike.

Long added: "I was pleased for Danny because it was his 14th goal of the season after a slow start.

"It was Josh March scoring all the goals earlier in the season and it's good to see them coming from somewhere else.

"I'm more concerned that we're conceding far too many goals at the moment. There's too many crosses coming into the box and we have to start dealing with them, otherwise I'll make changes and bring in people who can."

Victory over Sheffield signalled a fifth straight win for Alvechurch in Northern Premier League Division One South - a sequence which has taken them up to second spot.

Sadly there was only 127 paying customers at Lye Meadow to witness Dubidat's dream goal and Long added: "People are missing out at the moment.

"We're on a great run of form and playing some good football. It's just a shame we can't attract a few more people down to the club.

"We have a loyal band of supporters who follow us week-in, week-out, for which we are grateful. But we're not getting the amount of support that we should be getting.

"I look at the crowd figures and we're one of the lowest in the division for a club that is going forwards."

Long has brought his former goalkeeper Charlie Price to the Church after signing him from Lye Town last week.

He previously played for Long when he was in charge at Tividale.

Long was also hoping to snap up Jordan Nadat from high flying Midland League side Coleshill Town in time to face Newcastle Town on Saturday at Lye Meadow.

It follows loan signing Jasko Keranovic's decision to return to West Bromwich Albion.

Fellow shotstopper Paul Evans has been unable to commit to Church of late, but will continue to train with them.

Long was due to feature both Ryan Winwood and Nathan Waite against Heath Hayes in a J W Hunt Cup match last night (Tuesday Nivember 21) as the pair step-up their return following injury.

The fixture was however postponed and will now be played on Tuesday December 12.

Alvechurch play Newcastle Town at home on Saturday.
