Is this the greatest own goal of all time?

Luck of the Irish or the ultimate buzzard*? The latter I’m afraid. Mike Elwood of Irish League side Mervue United is the new proud owner of the title, ‘buzzard of the year.’

Mervue United took on Waterford in a title chasing arch rival league match, when Farrell attempted to clear the ball but his shot rebounded of Elwood’s face and flew straight into his own net.

Waterford went on to win 3-0.

*Rather unfortunate incident
