A clip involving a Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster is going viral on social media.

The club’s U18s faced off against Manchester United this weekend.

The Red Devils ran out 4-2 winners in Saturday morning’s game, which was attended by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Perhaps the most memorable moment of the match came just before half-time. James Storer makes five (not four as the below post says) saves in a matter of seconds.

The ball comes in from the right wing, and Storer makes a really good reaction save to deny an own goal.

The danger is far from over though, and the ball comes back in.

Storer flies across his goal and saves with his trailing legs, and then gets back up to make another two quick-fire saves from point-blank range – one of them being with his face!

The ball then goes out wide again and is pulled back for another player to try his luck.

Storer palms away his effort to complete a remarkable phase of play.

It is truly a rarity for goalkeepers to make five quick-fire saves.

Young Storer shows unbelievable reflexes and determination to keep the ball out of the net.

It is a shame that Wolves were unable to go on and draw or win.

But what a moment for Storer, who on the evidence of this one clip, is a name supporters should be watching out for in the coming years.
