Keepers prove good catch on camera

Goalkeeper Matthew Gregson, eight, from Farsley Celtic, Leeds, features in a national photography exhibition by the company which sponsors the FA Cup.

It has immortalised six "remarkable" amateur goalkeepers, including two eight-year-old boys and an 11-year-old girl, in the exhibition.

Portraits of the six will be hung in changing rooms and sports centres across the country before transferring to the Getty Images Gallery in London after next month's FA Cup Final. E.ON said it scoured the country's parks, for "weird and wonderful" tales of their local goalkeeping heroes.
