The full shortlist for this month’s award is as follows:
Simeon Akinola – BARNET v Crawley Town – 11th March
What made his spectacularly executed overhead kick extra special was the manner in which Akinola read a Jamal Campbell-Ryce cross that was drifting away from him.
Matt Butcher – Morecambe v YEOVIL TOWN – 11th March
Midfielder Butcher adjusted his body to face goalwards as a clearance dropped out of the sky and then caught it perfectly to send a 25-yard volley looping into the net.
Graham Carey – PLYMOUTH ARGYLE v Morecambe – 18th March
As the ball was tapped sideways to him, Carey already knew that he wanted to stop it, then curl it effortlessly over Morecambe keeper Barry Roche into the far corner.
