Gloucester City Football Club are delighted to announce that Kieran Parselle has won a goal of the month award for August for his stunning strike at Weston-super-Mare.
The award, voted for on Twitter and Facebook by followers of the Non-League Challenge, saw Parselle top a list of 10 goals scored in August.
It was Parselle’s first goal for the Tigers, and the Tigers defender thinks he’ll struggle to top it.
“Darren Mullings laid the ball off to me and I found myself in space so I just opened up my body and put my foot through it” said Parselle, describing the goal.
“I saw it flying towards the top corner and I just knew it was in from the way it was travelling, I couldn’t really believe it had gone in at the time but I’ve had that in my locker for a while now!
“It’s definitely the best goal I’ve scored in my career so far and I think it will be difficult to beat it if I’m honest, it was just a shame that we couldn’t go on to win the game.”
Congratulations, Kieran, from everyone at the club! You can view the winning goal on Tigers TV below.
