Striker's goal against Orient up for JPT Ultimate Finish
Three spectacular strikes have been shortlisted in the latest installment of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Ultimate Finish award, and fans have been asked to vote on which goal they think is worthy of the prize.
The goals have been chosen from ten that were scored in the Area Finals that took place in February. The Northern Area Final saw Crewe Alexandra beat Coventry City 3-2 on aggregate, whilst the Southern Area Final went to a tense finish with Southend United beating Leyton Orient 3-2 on aggregate with a very late goal.
The final choice will now rest with fans who will decide which player joins Portsmouth’s Brian Howard, Joel Grant of Wycombe Wanderers and Southend United’s Kevan Hurst as winners of this season’s coveted award.
It is another nomination for Southend United's Barry Corr, who won the Ultimate Finish for his goal against Oxford United in the Area Semi-Final.
Fans can watch an exclusive video of each of the fantastic finishes, and vote for their favourite effort, on the official Johnstone’s Paint Trophy website.
The three nominated goals from the Area Finals are:
GOAL A: Brad Inman for Coventry City v CREWE ALEXANDRA
GOAL B: AJ Leitch Smith for Coventry City v CREWE ALEXANDRA
GOAL C: Barry Corr for SOUTHEND UNITED v Leyton Orient
“As we’re now one step away from Wembley, it’s no surprise that the standard of goals has been spectacular in this round,” said Ben Wilde, Johnstone’s Trade Brand & Sponsorship Manager.
“Supporters have a tough decision to make as all three goals are worthy of the Award. We look forward to seeing which way the vote goes!”
The winning goal will be announced on the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy website, and all fans that vote for the successful strike will be entered into a special prize draw.
The winning goalscorer will be presented with the Johnstone’s Paint Ultimate Finish Award and one lucky fan who voted for the successful strike will win an iPod Nano.
At the culmination of this season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy, supporters will then have the opportunity to vote for the ‘Ultimate Finish of the Season’.
The winning goalscorer will be presented with the ‘Johnstone’s Paint Ultimate Finish of the Season Award’, while one lucky entrant will win a fantastic Sony Playstation 3 console with latest FIFA game.
