Yeoman Strike is Your Vote

YOUNG striker Ashley Yeoman has won the United fans’ vote for the Goal of the Year in 2013.

After years of knocking on the first-team door, Ash found himself thrust into a relegation battle toward the end of last season.

We travelled to Morecambe for the final away day of the campaign and there is no denying the Gulls were in desperate need on that sunny day in April.

A bizarre own goal gave us a half-time advantage but it was only when Ash emerged from the bench that victory was assured, and it turned out to be the three points that kept us in the Football League.

The goal itself was a blend of sublime skill and complete determination, as the young forward collected the ball 40 yards from goal, burst past two Morecambe defenders and slotted a wonderful finish inside the far corner.

Nice one.
