GOALS from each of the 72 Football League clubs are in contention to be named the Mitre Goal of the Year at the Football League Awards 2014.
Sky Sports’ Soccer AM will this weekend reveal which 10 goals from the list will now be put forward for a fan vote. The selection of the 10 best goals scored by League clubs form across Football League competitions in 2013 will be shown by Max Rushden and Helen Chamberlain on the Sky Sports programme on Saturday morning, along with details of how fans can vote for their favourite.
Each of the 72 Football League clubs nominated their best goal from 2013 as their own ‘Mitre Goal of the Year’ for the competition. The 10 best strikes have been selected to make the cut, with the fan vote then helping to decide the final shortlist of 5 goals. Alongside the vote, fans will be given a chance to win tickets to next month’s star studded event.
