Thetford’s Ian Henderson scored the best goal of the FA Cup third round, according to ITV Sport.

The Rochdale attacking midfielder — who played for Thetford Panthers until he was nine years old — caressed a first-time sidefooted volley over Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny is League Two Dale shocked the Championship play-off chasers.

That goal was nominated the best of the round by the broadcast company — ahead of strikes from four Premier League players, including England forward Rickie Lambert.

Two other local players reached the fourth round of the FA Cup as Bury-born Ed Upson came off the bench to help Yeovil Town thrash Leyton Orient 4-0, while former Bury Town left-back Ben Coker featured from the start in Southend United’s 4-1 triumph over Millwall.
