Classic video: Trevor Sinclair’s sublime overhead kick
A blast from the past on a thoroughly slow news day
Back in January 1997, things were great: Oasis ruled the airwaves, Princess Diana was still knocking about and Trevor Sinclair proved that is was acceptable for a Premier League footballer to wear his hair like he was a member of early nineties rap duo Kris Kross.
In an FA Cup tie with Barnsley, Sinclair experienced the greatest moment of his career, when his decision to perform an audacious scissor kick from outside the box paid off in spectacular fashion. For his acrobatic effort, the former England winger earned himself Match of the Day’s Goal of the Season Award for 1997.
