It’s been a year of some special goals scored by the Cobblers in 2015, and here’s your chance to vote for your favourite Town strike of the past 12 months.
A shortlist of seven goals scored by Cobblers players have been put forward, with one from last season and six from the current campaign.
The goals can be viewed here, and are also available to watch on the club’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/officiallyntfc - and picking the best one is not an easy decision!
Listed here are the efforts nominated, and there are some absolute belters.
Goal 1: Lawson D’Ath’s volley in the defeat at Burton Albion in April
Goal 2: Jason Taylor’s 25-yard dipping strike in the 3-0 win v Exeter City in August
Goal 3: Ryan Watson’s run and long-range strike in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Colchester United
Goal 4: John-Joe O’Toole’s low finish after a clever free-kick routine in the 4-3 win at Luton Town in December
Goal 5: Ricky Holmes’ swerving left-foot strike in the win at Kenilworth Road
Goal 6: John-Joe O’Toole’s long-range left-foot strike in the 2-1 victory at Crawley Town
Goal: 7: Marc Richards’ sweetly struck free-kick in the 3-2 win at Wycome Wanderers in October
The reason for the vote is that the Football League has launched the search to find the Mitre Goal of the Year for 2015, and the Cobblers are asking for the club’s supporters’ help in deciding which goal from the last 12 months should be put forward as the Northampton Town nomination.
The club can nominate one goal from any Football League competition in the 2015 calendar year, including goals scored in the Sky Bet Football League, the Capital One Cup and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
A club statement read: “We want fans to help us decide our club nomination by watching the YouTube reel of our shortlist and then voting on the Cobblers Wall.
“Our nominated goal will then be entered in the Mitre Goal of the Year category at the Football League Awards 2016.
“A judging panel will then review the goals, with the top few being shown on Football League Tonight on Channel 5.
“Fans will be given the opportunity to vote for goals to make the final shortlist of five, with the overall winner being decided by atendee votes on Sunday, April 17 at the Football League Awards at the Manchester Central hotel.
