A tragic story of a young goalkeeper - "Football" Magazine 1977

In October 1977, I had a fictional short story about football published in the United Kingdom magazine "Football".
It was called "The Penalty King" and was about a promising young goalkeeper who was an expert in saving penalties.
Here it is:

That reads like real life, Walter. How did the reference to you appear on P2.
In this period of a dearth of material to write about, you should create your own version Roy of the Rovers....Melchester Rovers live!
