Joe’s two good

Congratulations to Joe Gormley, who has won the season’s final Goal of the Month award.

The Cliftonville striker – whose precision finish in the Irish Cup Semi Final defeat of Loughgall was voted March’s best effort by the NI Football Writers’ Association – has made it two in a row courtesy of his Seaview stunner against Crusaders.

Receiving possession inside the hosts’ half, Gormley turned to unleash an incredible drive that powered past the despairing dive of goalkeeper Brian Jensen and found the back of the net after smashing off the underside of the crossbar – a strike you can run your eye over again on the BBC highlights reel here.

The memorable Derby Day opener has also been shortlisted for Goal of the Season at next week’s NI Football Awards, where it will compete with that eye-catching finish in the win over Loughgall and Daniel Reynolds’ delightful volley against Coleraine while on loan at Larne back in August.
