Hibernian 'keeper scores long-range goal in dream debut

Hibernian goalkeeper, Mark Oxley had a debut to remember when he scored a goal from inside his own penalty box in the club's first game of the season in the Scottish Championship. 

Media outlet Scotland Now reported that the 23-year-old, who is on loan from English Premier League club Hull City, got his name on the score sheet for the Scottish club when he punted a huge clearance up the field. 

The ball took a bounce in the penalty box and over the head of  Livingston's goalkeeper, Darren Jamieson. 

Hibernian play their football in the Scottish Championship, one rung below the top league in Scotland, the Scottish Premiership.

For the record, Hibernian won the game by a score of 2-1.

Hibernian striker Farid El Alagui headed home the first goal from a corner before Oxley scored his wonder goal.

Livivingston then pulled one back but they were unable to score any more goals as Hibernian hung on to the lead to win the game.
