Top 10 Sunday League Blunders


We love a bit of Sunday League action here at MyLocalPitch. You can find some cracking goals and witness skill worthy of the top division, but it can also be a goldmine of glaring misses, shocking own goals and embarrassing injuries.

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of our top 10 Sunday League blunders, so sit back and watch the chaos unfold…

10. This is actually a great header to be fair, it’s just a shame it’s into his own net…

Great floating header. Too bad it’s at the wrong end 🤦pic.twitter.com/4l6lOz1yzY

9. Another defensive howler. He does all that work to get back and fluffs it on the line. Shocker.

8. So your penalty’s been saved but all you have to do is get the rebound in. No problem, Hazard only did it the other night. Easy…

You should always follow in your strikes. Just a bit better than this… pic.twitter.com/nU3JWUvifg
