VIDEO: Weird Non-League Throw-In Doesn't Go to Plan at All

Freddie Young

Non-league side ​Brackley Town attempted a peculiar, but innovative, throw-in, which, unfortunately for them, didn't go to plan at all, reports ​Sports Joe.

Clubs have been trying to think of variations of the throw in for years, in order to gain an upper hand against their opponents, but the  Northamptonshire based side  took this a step further, as you can see form the video below: 

Brackley's throw-in taker decided to sit down and use the full force of his body and momentum to propel the ball into the box.

The side likely drew motivation for their throw in variation attempt from Gainsborough Trinity, who successfully pulled off the acrobatic front flip throw in the National League North on Monday. 

If Brackley were thrashing their opponents, say 5-0, then attempting this throw in would have been understood, but with the score at 0-0, and three points to play for, the throw in seemed foolish and a wast of a good attacking opportunity.

​​ Perhaps Brackley were dreaming of Miguel Gonzalez's goal for American side OKC Energy FC, in which an acrobatic front flip led to a stunning bicycle kick goal, but in the end, all that came from Brackley's attempt was a foul throw, and the game petered out for a 0-0 draw. Better luck next time!
