One Hit Wonder, Paperback Book


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.
