Many called it a once in a lifetime shot, but this is proof Charlie Adam’s weekend wonder strike was anything but a one-off.

The Stoke midfielder has been the talk of football after his incredible 66-yard goal against Chelsea on Saturday.

Adam’s sweetly struck left-footed shot flew over Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois, but this Gazette video shows Adam scored a similar effort for Blackpool reserves against Accrington Stanley in 2009.

The Gazette reported the then on loan Rangers star gave an “outstanding” two-goal display as ‘Pool earned a 4-2 victory.

After Saturday’s 2-1 defeat, Adam said: “I never knew I had that much power, to beat a quality goalkeeper like that is something special. One that I will always remember. It was one of them that sat up nicely and I saw the goalie off his line. I was lucky enough that it went in.”
