Jack bonham makes fantastic triple save to deny cardiff city

Jack Elliott Bonham (born 14 September 1993) is a professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Carlisle United, on loan from Brentford. Although born in England, he represented Republic of Ireland at U17 level. A product of the Watford academy, he spent time on loan at Harrow Borough before joining Brentford in June 2013.

Bonham signed a scholarship deal with Watford in June 2010, but quickly signed his first professional contract three months later, having just turned 17. Due to first team goalkeeper Scott Loach incurring a suspension, Bonham received his first call up to the first team squad on 26 November 2011, when he was an unused substitute for a 0–0 Championship draw with Doncaster Rovers. During the 2012–13 season, Bonham was an unused substitute on 12 occasions.

Bonham made his only appearance for Watford on 4 May 2013, when he came on as a substitute for injured goalkeeper Jonathan Bond after 24 minutes of the final game of the season against Leeds United. He was only included in the squad due to an injury sustained in the warm up by first-choice goalkeeper Manuel Almunia and was at fault for both Leeds' goals in the 2–1 defeat, which cost Watford the chance of automatic promotion to the Premier League. After the match, Watford manager Gianfranco Zola refused to blame Bonham for his actions. Bonham was not called into the squad for Watford's unsuccessful playoff campaign. On 7 June 2013, Watford announced that Bonham's contract would not be renewed and he was released by the club.

On 18 February 2012, Bonham joined Isthmian League Premier Division side Harrow Borough on a one-month emergency loan deal. He made the first senior appearance of his career the same day, conceding two goals in a 2–2 draw with Bury Town. On 14 March, the loan was extended by a further month. He returned to Watford in April after he broke a bone in his hand during a 4–3 defeat to Canvey Island. He made 9 appearances for the club and failed to keep a clean sheet.

On 12 June 2013, Bonham signed a two-year contract with League One side Brentford. He made his debut for the club in a League Cup first round tie at home to Dagenham & Redbridge on 6 August, in which Brentford ran out 3–2 extra time winners. His second appearance came in the following round away to Derby County, in which he endured a torrid evening as the home side cruised to a 3–0 lead before half time, eventually winning 5–0. Bonham made his league debut on 7 September, coming off the bench against Bradford City after starting keeper David Button was sent off. Described as a 'nightmare afternoon' in press reports, he conceded four goals as Brentford lost 4–0. Bonham spent much of the remainder of the season away on loan.

A persistent shoulder injury suffered by Richard Lee saw Bonham serve as backup to David Button through the Bees' 2014–15 Championship campaign. He signed a new three-and-a-half year contract on 2 January 2015 and celebrated his signing the following day with his first start of the season in an FA Cup third round match versus Brighton & Hove Albion. He conceded two late goals as Brentford were knocked out after suffering a 2–0 defeat, though winning the club's social media man of the match award proved to be a consolation. It was his only appearance of the season.

Bonham had a nightmare start to the 2015–16 season, conceding four goals on his sole appearance against Oxford United in the League Cup first round on 11 August 2015. He again served as David Button's backup throughout the campaign. Despite the departure of Button on 19 July 2016, Bonham entered the 2016–17 season as second-choice behind new signing Daniel Bentley. He made his first appearance of the season in a 1–0 EFL Cup first round defeat to Exeter City on 9 August 2016. Having failed to make an appearance in nearly five months, he revealed in late December 2016 that it was "frustrating" to be denied the chance to move away on loan. Bonham made his second appearance of the season and his first league start for Brentford versus Barnsley on 17 April 2017 and won the club's man of the match award for his performance in the 1–1 draw. It proved to be his final appearance of the season and he signed a one-year contract extension in June 2017, which will keep him at Griffin Park until the end of the 2018–19 season.

Arlesey Town (loan)

On 15 November 2013, Bonham joined Southern League Premier Division side Arlesey Town on loan until 2 January 2014. He made his debut the following day in a 2–0 FA Trophy third qualifying round victory over Marlow. He endured another nightmare afternoon in the following round, conceding five goals in a 5–1 defeat to Whitehawk on 30 November. After four successive defeats and conceding 12 goals, Bonham helped Arlesey to three league wins in a row in December and at the end of the month, his loan was extended until the end of the 2013–14 season. Bonham was recalled on 8 February 2014, after making 19 appearances.

Carlisle United (loan)

On 27 June 2017, Bonham joined League Two club Carlisle United on a half-season loan. He began the 2017–18 season as the club's first-choice goalkeeper.
