It was Jimmy's 92nd-minute strike in the last game of the season that kept Carlisle in the Football League.
Even more remarkably, Jimmy is a goalkeeper. Jimmy Glass's fascinating story runs parallel to the changing face of football.
A one-time gambling addict and bodyguard for Andre Agassi, as well as being the only keeper to score an own goal at Wembley, his career is a rollercoaster ride far removed from the standard football biography.
Jimmy made GBP200 from the goal which saved Carlisle millions.
He is now working as a computer salesman while struggling to support his young family.
He is also currently playing Sunday league football as a striker.
