More than 2.5 million people have now watched Black Country Rangers’ strike after it was featured by the Express & Star, Soccer AM, ESPN and 433 on Instagram.

Kieron Clarke provided the finishing touch to a length-of-the-field multi-pass move in their West Midlands League Premier Division match against Malvern Town at The Grove earlier this month.

Rangers are currently second in the West Midlands Premier.

Rangers bagged a 2-2 draw with Malvern.

The 80th minute equaliser has received widespread national acclaim with Sky Sports' Soccer AM describing it as, 'a lesson in how to play non-league football.'

Black Country Rangers boss Wayne Spicer said: "“It’s not too bad is it? I think it was 17 passes in the end.

"The philosophy is for us to play free-flowing football. We’ve got players like Kieron that have really taken to it.

"We’re a confident group. We want to get promotion – if not this season, then the season after.”
