NPL goalkeeper guides team to grand final just hours after getting married | The World Game  11/22/2020 04:06:37 

Borean arrived for the Lions NPL Queensland semi-final still in his wedding suit and was able to play after reaching an agreement with his new wife and Souths United goalkeeper, Ellen.

The two events took place on the same day after the coronavirus pandemic pushed the fixture into what would normally be the off-season.

Nevertheless, the 30-year-old put in an impressive display during his sides 4-1 victory over Peninsula Power  one coach Darren Sime remains really thankful for.

I had to ask him a couple of times to confirm (that hed play), Sime said, as quoted by ABC News.

He turned up, fairly nonchalantly, at training on the Tuesday and I said Id need him to help prepare [reserve keeper] Ryan Murphy for the match.

He just said: Ah dont worry about that Simsey, its under control.

Obviously the club would never, ever stand in the way of a players wedding, you have to celebrate those moments.

But they chose to celebrate that moment with us, which were really thankful for.

The Lions will now face either Brisbane Olympic or Gold Coast Knights in next weeks Grand Final, in what is bound to be the final hurdle before the Boreans' honeymoon.
