Ghanaian teenager Koby Arthur netted the solitary goal for Cheltenham Town as they booked a 1-0 win over Hartlepool United in the English League Two on Saturday afternoon. 

The 18-year-old on loan Birmingham City young had come off the bench with 12 minutes of normal time remaining and he shouldered the challenge to score the match winner at the The Abbey Business Stadium.

Arthur latched onto a through pass from Troy Brown at the far and skipped a forest of legs before brilliantly finishing off the move in style on the 90th minute mark.

The youngster, who has been courted by Manchester City and Chelsea in the past has bagged three goals in his last four games for Cheltenham since arriving on loan.

    I know this boy in Ghana. He is very talented and should gain a call up into the under 20 national team.
