COWLEY INTERVIEW: Jason’s reflections on one crazy week

“Madness. Absolute madness,” Jason said, as he described what has simply been a hectic time of things for the 23 year-old striker.

This was, of course, due to the incredible goal he scored against Corby Town last Saturday, which soon went viral online, gaining worldwide recognition.

“The amount of people I’ve had message me, the things I’ve had to do for newspapers and stuff – it’s been absolutely mad.”

One of Jason’s many media appearances included an interview on talkSPORT’s ‘Hawksbee & Jacobs Show’, which he described as ‘wicked’.

Other moments that Jason picked out as ones he is particularly proud of included hearing ex-England goalkeeper David Seaman talk about him on The Alan Brazil Breakfast Show (hosted on that occasion by former Scotland striker Ally McCoist) and the goal appearing on SoccerAM, which he referred to as a ‘great achievement’.

As previously mentioned, the goal has reached many corners of the globe, including a Brazilian radio show.

“It’s been discussed in America on an Atlanta news station and my auntie, who lives in Spain, saw it on TV before she’d even seen it,” he said.

It’s fair to say that Jason didn’t expect the effort to become as massive as it has done.

“From when it happened, I didn’t think it was as good as when I saw it back.

“But I actually watched the ball as it happened, which makes it look even better – I could have hit it better though!” he jested.

There has even been talk of the goal possibly being nominated for the Puskas Award, the prestigious FIFA award for the ‘most beautiful’ goal of the year.

First awarded in 2009, the accolade has been won by some of the biggest names in football.

“I’ll just have to go there and take the award off Ronaldo or Messi!” he joked.

“It would be a great achievement for myself and obviously my family,” he added.

The match against Corby Town started on a positive note, before it had even began, as the striker was presented with a framed shirt, as a memento for recently reaching 100 goals for the club.

Remarking on the celebration of the milestone, he said: “It’s a great achievement for myself personally – I love scoring goals and it’s a great club to score goals at.”

This interview with the club took place after Jason notched up yet another goal for the Rouslers, in a 2-1 away at Didcot Town.

His goal came a mere six minutes into the game – if he has had a mad a week as he suggested, he certainly didn’t take long to brush it off!
