Terry Dixon produced a spectacular glimpse of his ability to earn Tooting & Mitcham a point from Saturday’s six-goal thriller at Tonbridge Angels.

And boss Mark Beard was thrilled with the 21-year-old former Spurs and West Ham youngster’s contribution to a 3-3 draw.

Boss Mark Beard said: “It really was a first-class goal. It reminded me of some of the goals Mark Hughes scored where he let the ball come over his shoulder and then hit it first time on the volley.

“It was superb and I am delighted for him. He is a very talented player and I want to help him back to where he should be with his football.

“He was being compared to Wayne Rooney when he was called into Ireland’s senior squad as a 16-year-old and I have seen first hand what a talent he is.”

An own goal and Sol Pinnock – who later hit the post – had given Tooting a 2-0 first half lead only for Angels to hit back to lead 3-2.

Dixon’s strike is a late contender for goal of the season and is one of the awards fans can vote for on the club’s website or at the club.

The Terrors hold their annual awards, which also include young player of the year and supporters player of the year after the final game of the season against Canvey Island and the deadline for votes in Monday, April 25.

Meanwhile, fans are invited to take part in the club’s golf day at Westerham Golf Club on Tuesday, April 26.

The cost is £60 per person including breakfast of a coffee and bacon roll, an 18-hole golf tournament and a three-course lunch plus prizes for the top three places, the longest drive and nearest the the pin.

Players and staff from Tooting & Mitcham will be involved.
