Incredible | Player Forgets Boots, Wears Kitman Boots & Scores Winning Goal
Tyrese Sinclair, a 22-year-old player for Altrincham Football Club, forgot his boots for yesterday's match away vs Barnet. What then happened is incredible.
Tyrese Sinclair Borrrows Wornout Tiempo Boots of Kitman, Scores 4-2
Tyrese Sinclair got the "crusty" Tiempo Legend 7 Black Pack boots provided by the kitman. Sinclair usually wears Adidas X Speedportal boots.
The Tiempos of the kitman are probably more than four years old
The Nike Tiempo Legend 7 in black, silver, and red were released in July 2018, and the boots did look as worn out as boots that are more than 4 years old. His new old footwear didn't hold him back. In fact, he helped lead Altrincham to a 4-2 victory over Barnet, scoring the final goal.
Joe Cole forgot his boots in 2021
While Altrincham FC's victory over Barnet surely does not mark a significant moment in the club's history, Sinclair's boot switch might become one.
Indeed, Sinclair is of course not the first and not the most famous footballer who forgot his boots. In 2021, former England international and BT Sport pundit, Joe Cole, made a surprise comeback for non-league side Belstone FC. After forgetting his boots, Cole borrowed a pair of boots and played in an offensive midfield position, helping his team secure a 2-1 win in the Regional Cup against Harefield United Reserves.
