If you’ve not yet seen them, January’s serving of the best goals from the Welsh Premier once again makes for impressive viewing…
#1 Matty McGinn (AIR): McGinn, playing as a makeshift left-back for Andy Preece remains a goal threat as his outrageous dipping half-volley against Connah’s Quay shows.
#2 Luke Bowen (PTT): After being named Player of the Month for January, Bowen carried his form into the New Year as he worked his way into space past Bangor City’s Chris Roberts before applying a neat finish into the top-hand corner.
#3 Neil Mitchell (NEW): A strong contender for Goal of the Season, let alone Goal of the Month. The Robins forward kept alive his side’s top-six hopes with a fierce 20-yard screamer. One of those, where the ball was destined for the back of the net the moment it left his boot. Real quality.
#4 Rob Hughes (RHL): Ignore the haircut, Hughes makes no mistake with a curling left-back free-kick. He may have found himself in and out of the Rhyl side this season but there’s no doubting his talent.
#5 Jason Oswell (NEW): Oswell neatly swivels and fires past the hapless Terry McCormick from the edge of area as the former Rhyl and Airbus man enjoys a breakout season in the WPL.
#6 Ross Stephens (ABR): Not a bad way to introduce to his new Aberystwyth teammates as he marks his debut with a thumping left-footed strike from outside of the box in the mid-Wales derby.
You can see them for yourself below, but my picks in reverse order are:
Third: Goal #2 Luke Bowen
Second: Goal #1 Matty McGinn
Winner: Goal #3 Neil Mitchell
EDIT: The January’s winner was indeed Goal #3. I’m sure we’ll see Neil Mitchell’s strike as a contender for Goal of the Season.
