Elliott Nevitt wins League Two Goal of the Month

Tranmere Rovers striker Elliott Nevitt is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for January, receiving 47% of the public vote. 

Timing a volley as the ball takes an age to drop is an art form which Nevitt has clearly perfected. He waited just long enough to send a perfectly placed shot into the top corner.

Nevitt said, “I’m delighted to win the Goal of the Month competition. It was a goal that I will remember for a while and it came in a great win for the team which is the main thing.

“I remember the ball sitting up nicely, I just put my foot through it and it went into the top corner. I don’t mind how the goals come as long as the team is winning.”

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said, “With the Scunthorpe defence failing to clear their lines, Nevitt was on hand to make sure they were thoroughly punished, with an outstanding 20-yard volley into the top corner.

“Nevitt’s story is a brilliant one, with him only turning pro in July last year at age of 24 and now in a team challenging for promotion and scoring wondergoals…he’ll hope to play a big part in leading Tranmere into League One next season.”

Nevitt beat off competition from Walsall’s Conor Wilkinson and Hartlepool United’s Nicky Featherstone.
