Gary Goals: Advert for striker 'who has scored in every game he's played'
A hilarious advert by a footballer looking for a team and calling himself Gary Goals has gone viral.
The budding striker boasts he had trials for 'Doncaster United', scores “all types of goals” and has once “played against Wayne Rooney’s cousin”.
The advert spotted in the Shoreditch area of east London has spread across the internet after someone took a photo of it.
In a voicemail for the mobile phone number left on the advert, Gary informs the caller he is “based in Hackney but willing to travel”.
The message says: “Greetings and salutations, you have reached the voicemail of Gary Goals.
“I’m not able to take your call right now because I’m either playing a match, out with a lady or hitting the gym hard!”
Thought to be a spoof, the advert reads: “I do all types of goals including free kicks, bicycle kicks and penos.
“I scored in every match I have ever played in!! I do not lie! Five-a-side, 7-a-side and 11-a-side, all is good!!”
The voicemail - in a thick Irish accent - continues: “If you would like me to play in your game leave your name, where said match will be taking place, the colour of the clothes and the quality of all the people playing the football game.
“I am a top class striker with a proven track record scoring goals for teams all over Ireland and all over Europe - especially Ireland.”
Twitter users have gone online to spread the word that such a “top class” striker is available.
