WATCH the goal of the season contender you won’t see anywhere else.

Peter Weatherson of Annan Athletic had already bagged two goals when he picked up the ball close to the halfway line.

The game was entering its closing stages with the visitors, at this point still clinging to a hope of reaching the play-offs, leading Elgin City 4-3.

Looking up and seeing keeper Ross Laidlaw off his line, Weatherson fired an audacious effort which arched over the backtracking custodian and landed in the back of the net.

It would later prove to be the winning goal as the home side’s Darryl McHardy completed his own hat-trick deep into stoppage time.

Unfortunately for Annan other results went against them and they’re left requiring a seven-goal swing if they’re to leapfrog East Fife into the last remaining play-off spot on the season’s final day.
