CometSport runs the rule over the Stevenage goal of the month for August. Read on for Charlie Coleman’s take.
JOEL BYROM V TRANMERE
Joel Byrom treated us to a goal of the month contender on the opening game of the season with a fine finish to kick-start Boro’s campaign. James Ball smartly turned his man which set the ball up for Byrom to run on to and with the Tranmere defenders making a desperate attempt to close him down, the No8 slotted home a neat finish past Scott Davies into his bottom right corner from outside the box.
ALEX REVELL V CRAWLEY
Alex Revell has made a name for himself at Stevenage for his tireless work upfront and he was rewarded late on against Crawley with a superb header to snatch all three points. Luther Wildin played over a stunning cross from the right towards the back-post where Revell caught the Crawley defence napping. The former-Rotherham man got in behind to head across goal just inside the post to award Boro their first win of the season and send the fans into delirium.
JAMES BALL V NORWICH
Our favourite is Jimmy Ball’s sumptuous free-kick at Carrow Road as Boro proved a tough test for Championship side Norwich in the first round of the Carabao Cup. With the ball positioned just left of centre, Ball looked confident as the Canaries attempted to prepare themselves for a strike they could do nothing about. The midfielder curled a perfect effort in off the post to provide a spectacle for the travelling fans as Michael McGovern, who played in the Euros for Northern Ireland two years ago, could do nothing to stop the ball soar into the left-hand side of his net.
MICHAEL TIMLIN V MORECAMBE
Michael Timlin lit up The Lamex right on half-time when he rocketed in an effort against Morecambe. Good work from Emmanuel Sonupe down the right saw his low cross recovered by Revell who had the composure to tee-up Timlin on the edge of the box. With one touch to set himself, the other produced a superbly whipped strike into the top left corner to win the game.
BEN KENNEDY V SWANSEA U21s
Ben Kennedy’s lively performance against Swansea U21s was rounded off with a sublime goal that sent Boro well on their way to a 5-0 victory. Arthur Iontton fed the ball into Kennedy and with his back to goal, the No 10 swivelled onto his left and fired a looping effort into the far-right corner leaving Steven Benda in the Swansea goal helpless.
