Home / Club Teams / A Very Dirty Tackle From the World of Amateur Soccer


Amateur soccer is not always known for the best quality or cleanest play, but this tackle has to take the cake for the worst one. I’ve seen a few bad ones in my day, slide tackles from, shoulders under the chin, the quick kick to the kneecap, but this player is just brazen. All credit to the guardian.co.uk for this one, and I hope his soccer socks were padded. It seems that this club who were previously known for cutting grass around their touchline, now have another badge of honor to display in the club house, or local pub.

I've played soccer since I could walk thanks to my father and love keeping up on all the latest gear and gab. I'm in my twenties, and I'm lucky enough to have found work in search marketing for a leading soccer retailer after completing my M.A. at Georgetown in 2008. My team is Liverpool, and national side is Ireland, but I've also got a passion for GAA and a number of sports. Feel free to give me a shout on Google+
