He announced at the weekend that his 27-year run at the helm of Soccer Saturday would soon be over.

And news that Jeff Stelling is stepping down has prompted memories of some iconic moments during his time on the Sky Sports show.

Not least the most dramatic Carlisle United story of them all.

Stelling was anchoring the programme on May 8, 1999 when on-loan goalkeeper Jimmy Glass miraculously saved the Blues with an injury-time goal against Plymouth.

The popular presenter struggled to hide his astonishment as he relayed the news to viewers, as Soccer Saturday reporters told the story of United's incredible escape from Football League relegation - and the demise of Scarborough, where fans' celebrations quickly turned into dismay.

"I hope this is accurate news for Carlisle fans' sake," said Stelling, as details first emerged of Glass's strike, with pundits in the studio audibly stunned by the news.

"We hear that Jimmy Glass, the goalkeeper, has scored for Carlisle..."

Stelling used the latest show on Saturday to announce he would be stepping down at the end of this season.

The 66-year-old presenter and Hartlepool fan said it had been an "incredibly difficult decision".

He added: "This is my decision. There has been no pressure. Sky have been absolutely brilliant with me.

"It is time to let somebody else have a go at what is the best job in the world."
