Sunday League sensation Adam ‘Garmz’ Garmson fills talkSPORT on ‘incredible’ goal reel that has 2.5 million views and could earn him a FIFA Puskas Award nomination


Viral Sunday League sensation Adam Garmson has spoken to talkSPORT about his incredible goal which has garnered over 2.5 million views.

Playing for Down Syndrome Awareness FC in support of his friend’s son, Garmson – or “Garmz” as he is known online – lit up the internet with incredible purpose.


Garmson’s newest world quickly went viral

But as he told talkSPORT, it's all about his friend's son

The No.9 shoved an opposition goalkeeper pressed to the side of the box before collecting the ball, and as he approached the touchline to get out of play, he then dropped his jaws while around.

Sinking the ball with the outside of his left boot at an impossible angle near the corner flag, his shot curled around the goalkeeper and two defenders in the top corner, with Garmson already in shock.

Several viral accounts began posting the effort with over three million views, and it later became clear that it was no accident when Garmson uploaded a compilation of his finishes and his skills.

With scorpion kicks, rabona finishes and an astonishing array of lobbed goals, Garmson was filmed ending goalkeeping careers across the Midlands.

And as he revealed to talkSPORT, views matter, with the team set up to support his friend’s son.

“I play for Down Syndrome Awareness FC on a Sunday,” he told Hawksbee and Jacobs. “It’s for a friend of mine whose son was born with Down syndrome and they put the team together for him to raise awareness.

“We also wanted to do it for Jack, my buddy’s son who in the future has something there, the club will be his then.”

It’s all about family for Garmson, who said the footage was courtesy of his mother, with clips from Down Syndrome Awareness FC, as well as his Saturday side Wolves Casuals.

He explained: “My mum comes to watch most of the games and she catches most of the goals on her phone and she sends them to me and I put them all together myself.

“To be honest, we are looking for sponsors, Wolves Casuals as well, but mainly Down Syndrome Awareness.”

Asked about the number of views and how long he’s been pocketing worlds, Garmson said, “I can’t [believe it]this is beyond me, i never thought it would go so viral to be honest.

“I’m known for that but as I see when I play football, I wear number nine, it’s my job to score.”

Things could soon look up for Garmson when the Puskas award rolls around, with the FIFA Goal of the Calendar Year award not being restricted to just professionals.

Puskas rules state that it must be awarded “Without regard to championship, gender or nationality”, which means Garmson could be among the future nominees.

Asked about the award, he said: “I don’t really know about it, people have tagged me in it, I wouldn’t complain about it, let’s just say that.”

Well, with the views and tags circulating, FIFA will certainly be aware, and Garmson could soon join Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar and Mohamed Salah on stage at the ceremony, with a new shirt sponsor in tow.
