Swindon Town 2014/15 Review – Goal of the Season
In the first part of our end of the 2014/15 season review, five of our writers give their verdict on the goal of the season and we ask for your vote on their nominations…
David Squires @squires_david
Goal of the season – Anton Rodgers v Leyton Orient. The meaninglessness of the fixture (from a Swindon point of view) shouldn’t detract from the perfect execution of the finish and the sheer surprise of the source of the goal. Flicking the ball up and volleying it into the net in one beautifully choreographed movement; two perfect touches being about as many as Rodgers had enjoyed in months (okay, a couple of weeks).

Goal of the season – I’d say either Williams’ thunderbastard against Oldham at home, or L Thompson ( 8 think) after Yaser bamboozled two opposing defenders in the corner flag?
Iain Watkins @mightygwah
Goal of the season – Rohan Ince’s volley in the Brighton game. For Town, my favourite was Willo’s strike at home to Oldham.
Jonny Leighfield @jonnyleighfield
Goal of the season – Michael Smith against Bristol City. Those dancing feet would serve him well on Strictly and although he has come in for some criticism in recent weeks, we can’t forget how important that goal he scored was. And it was a pretty good one at that.
Daniel Hunt @dphunt88
Goal of the season – There’s been some cracking Swindon goals this season and honourable mentions must go to Andy Williams (Home to Oldham), Louis Thompson (Home to Sheffield United) and Yaser Kasim (Away to Chesterfield) but on difficulty alone, Ben Gladwin’s half volley against Sheffield United in the play-off second leg wins it hands down! It was a breathtaking strike that was still rising as it flew past the goalkeeper. Whammo!
Think I will go for Nathan’s Byrne’s goal against Orient. Primarily as it is the goal that lots of people say we never score – a quick counter. And it is a bloody brilliant goal. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=1q1m6RYjhOU
My goal of the season is L. Thompson’s goal against Sheff.Utd. The tricks shown by Kasim in the build up to the goal is pure brilliance. And it is a great strike by Thompson.
