Help us choose our Goal of the Year
The Football League have launched the search to find the Mitre Goal of the Year for 2012 and we are asking for your help in deciding which of our goals from the last 12 months should be put forward as our nomination.
We can nominate one goal from any Football League competition in the 2012 calendar year, to include goals scored in the npower Football League, the Capital One Cup [and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy].
We want fans to help us decide our club nomination by Tweeting @SUFCRootsHall with your favourite goal of 2012 and the hashtag #sufcgoal2012 or on our Facebook (SouthendUnitedFC) post. The three nominations with the most votes on Twitter and Facebook will be put into a poll on our official site homepage. Our Goal of the Year will be the one that receives the most votes on the poll.
Closing date for all nominations is Friday 8th February and the closing date for the poll on the homepage will be Monday 11th at midday.
Our nominated goal will then be entered in the Mitre Goal of the Year category at the Football League Awards 2013. The winner will be decided at the glittering Awards ceremony at The Brewery, London on Sunday 24th March 2013.
Past winners of the Mitre Goal of the Year have been Peter Whittingham (Cardiff City – 2012), Dean Furman (Oldham Athletic - 2011), Nicky Maynard (Bristol City – 2010), Sylvain-Ebanks Blake (Wolverhampton Wanderers – 2009), Jermaine Beckford (Leeds United – 2008), Joe Ledley (Cardiff City – 2007) and Stefan Oakes (Notts County – 2006).
