Gordon On Cloud Nine After First Professional Goal

Winger Reflects On Personal Milestone

29 October 2017

Kellan Gordon was over the moon to have opened his account in professional football after grabbing our third goal in the 3-0 win away at Port Vale on Saturday.

The winger was only on the pitch for a matter of seconds when Harry Smith found him with a precise pass, and he did the rest to wrap up the three points and send the away fans behind the goal into raptures. 

It was Gordon's first-ever goal in professional football and he described the feeling as one of the best he's had in his career so far.

"It was an unbelievable feeling," he told swindontownfc.co.uk exclusively.

"A shout out to Smudge (Harry Smith) because he didn't have to square it, but he did and my eyes just lit up and I put it in.

 

"It was good to do it at the end with the fans and they were buzzing. They've been behind me since I've been here so to get my first goal in-front of them was brilliant."

"It is probably the best feeling I've had in football so far.

"I thought Smudge was going to want to score because he's a striker and that's his job but he squared it to me and I was able to get my first goal.

"I was on for a few seconds so it was nice to put it in and get my first goal - it was an unreal feeling.

"It was good to do it at the end with the fans and they were buzzing. They've been behind me since I've been here so to get my first goal in-front of them was brilliant."

Gordon also felt that Town were good value for their victory following another hugely impressive display on the road.

"It was a bit here and there in the first-half but second-half we picked up and showed the quality we've got," he added.

"All the lads were brilliant and the result proves that we've got a lot of quality and we can score goals.

"We're happy we are picking up points and we should be doing that with the players we've got.

"We've probably got one of the best away records in the league and that showed on Saturday."
