NEWS | Arquin up for Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month

Wonder strike recognised

11 January 2019

Yoann Arquin's wonder strike against Northampton Town before Christmas has been shortlisted for Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month for December.

With the Glovers trailing 1-0 going into the final minute against the Cobblers, the Martinique international unleashed an unstoppable half-volley from 35 yards to crash in off of the crossbar. 

His fourth goal of the season, Arquin recently signed a new deal to remain at Huish Park until at least the end of the season

Recognised for the stunning strike, the winners of the Sky Bet EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on skysports.com with votes closing at 10am on Monday 14th January. To vote for Yoann, click here.

The shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter.  

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman; Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager Michael Holinski and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden.

To suggest a goal to be considered for future Sky Bet Goal of the Month awards, fans can tweet details of their nominated goal to @SkyBet using #SkyBetGotM.

The Sky Bet League Two nominees are as follows:

Yoann Arquin – YEOVIL TOWN v Northampton Town – 22nd December
With his side trailing in the final minute, Arquin decided it was time to chest down a bouncing ball and strike the dreamiest volley of his career in off the underside of the bar.

George Williams – Newport County v FOREST GREEN ROVERS – 26th December
Williams’ free-kick was so far out from the Newport goal, it was almost over the border in England. So perfectly was it struck that no goalkeeper in either country could have saved it.

Wes Thomas – Port Vale v GRIMSBY TOWN – 26th December
The sign of a striker in form is that he knows what he is going to do before anyone else on the pitch. To be precise, a jink inside and an arrowhead of a shot into the far top corner.
