The English football league saw the fastest goal of the season scored today in League 2, but it won't go down in the record books.

Barnet went a goal up against Newport County thanks to a strike from John Akinde after 23 seconds but due to the September rain, the game had to be abandoned at half-time, meaning that the goal won't count. 

It is something that will surely infuriate the Bees faithful as they looked in control of the game, with Jean-Lois Akpa-Akpro also hitting the bar for the visitors.
