Goat Heading Back Home

Goat Heading Back Home



Shaun Goater is retiring for football at the age of 36 and heading back home to Bermuda where he plans to spend more time with his Grassroots Soccer Programme to develop local football talent.

The Goat was signed from Bristol City for a bargain �400,000 in March 1998 and scored 103 goals in five years at City before joining Reading in 2003 and winding up this season at Southend who currently top the Leadue One table.

Shaun will be remembered fondly for a number of reasons, but I guess the highlight for many of us will be the two goals he scored against the Reds that helped City win the final Maine Road derby in November 2002. Shame he can't come back to City for the remainder of the season and solve our striker crisis.

The current crop of premiership strikers could do well to learn about attitude and professionalism from this guy; no cheating and diving - just 110% commitment.

Farewell Shaun - you're a City legend and a gentleman; thanks for the great memories!
