Number One: How to take a free-kick
Views: 779,300


For Royals supporters who keep an eye on our Twitter feed and YouTube channel, it will be of no surprise that Liam Kelly's magical free-kick is our number one most viewed video of all time.

In August 2013, the Academy play-maker attempted an audacious set piece in which, after captain Aaron Kuhl tapped the ball, Kelly flicked it up so he was able to volley the ball into the back of the net, past a bamboozled Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper.

The video became an instant YouTube favourite, heading viral across the world - with over three quarters of a million views accumulated to date.
