Watch £30m-rated Jordan Pickford's nightmare error against AFC Telford

With Everton reportedly agreeing a £30m fee for Sunderland goalkeeper Jordan Pickford - it's worth remembering he wasn't always worth the big bucks.

Rewind to 2012, a 17-year-old Pickford was on the books of Darlington in the Blue Square Bet Premier, going up against AFC Telford.

In what turned out to be a thrilling 3-3 draw between the relegation threatened sides, the now England prospect had a real nightmare when conceding his second goal of the contest.

With the ball played back to him, the stopper struggles with the bounce of the ball, skewing it horribly for the onrushing Richard Davies to score.

Safe to say, the Englishman might not have felt like £30m after that mishap.

Of course, it's clear that with his recent performances for the Black Cats, that he's more than over it - and we wish him luck as he continues his career between the sticks.
