Woody hell, Ful­ham!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS - By TREVOR WIL­LIAMS

FUL­HAM play­ers were left red-faced when a FAN beat them in a game of cross­bar chal­lenge.

The Craven Cot­tage club raised a few ex­tra quid by charg­ing sup­port­ers to at­tend an open train­ing ses­sion.

But Martin Jol’s squad were up­staged in a com­pe­ti­tion to win a signed shirt by a fan who showed he was bet­ter at shoot­ing than they were.

The play­ers all missed, with Bryan Ruiz the clos­est, but the fan hit the bar.

One Ful­ham player who does know what it feels like to thwack wood­work is Alex Ka­caniklic. The 20-year-old winger made his first-team de­but by com­ing on as a sub in Satur­day’s 2-1 win against Nor­wich City.

The Swede, who had been re­called from a loan spell at Wat­ford, saw Ca­naries keeper John Ruddy tip a great curl­ing strike onto the bar.

“It was a good save. I en­joyed the game but of course it would have been even bet­ter if I’d scored,” said Ka­caniklic.

“But I’m happy to have made my de­but and I’m happy that we won – that’s the im­por­tant thing.”
