COULSON GOAL MAKES HISTORY

BORO'S youngest player Michael Coulson is in dreamland after making club history when scoring a late equaliser in the 2-2 draw with Tamworth.

The 16-year-old, who left Graham School last year, pounced with 10 minutes to go, slamming home a rebound for his first ever senior goal for the club.

His 80th minute goal made him the club's youngest ever scorer at senior level.

Coulson – the second youngest player to ever turn out for the Seasiders – is now hoping to book a more regular role in the first team and continue his goal-scoring.

He beamed: "It was all a bit of a blur really. I can remember the ball coming to me and I just hit it as hard as I could, then I got jumped on by about six of my teammates.

"I'm over the moon, scoring your first goal is a great experience.

"I have had a few chances in the past, especially in the game against Dagenham, but I failed to stick any of them away.

"I was just desperate to score, and now I have then hopefully I will get a few more.

"I'm not sure if I'll get a run in the side – but it will be great if I do."

Coulson is a former Boro school of excellence player, and the son of former Edgehill boss Steve.

His brothers Alec and Martin play for Edgehill and Traf, while another brother, John, is the Edgehill Reserves boss.
