On this day: Ferrie's thunderbolt

30th September 2018

Ferrie Bodde scored an iconic goal from 45 yards on this day in 2008.

Roberto Martinez’s Swansea City side beat Preston 2-0 at Deepdale, with Bodde and Jordi Gomez both on the scoresheet.

Bodde’s stunning goal gave the Swans the lead midway through the first half, as he took aim from long range and watched as the ball sailed beyond Preston keeper Andy Lonergan.

Gomez then tucked home a penalty late on to secure all three points.
