15.04.22 Elliot Anderson Goal of the Month

Midfielder Elliot Anderson is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for March, receiving 50% of the public vote!

There was something Maradona-esque about the way Anderson slalomed his way through the Harrogate defence, showing the ball, then dragging it away before finding the bottom corner.

Anderson said:

“I’m very happy to win this award as I enjoyed scoring that goal. Hopefully, it won’t be the last award we pick up this season!”


Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said:

“Although it may have been clear to those who have followed his career closely, this mazy run and smart finish was the moment where Elliot Anderson announced himself as a huge prospect to the wider EFL world.

Under Joey Barton’s tutelage, the Newcastle loanee has steadily grown throughout the season and it now leading Rovers’ charge towards the League Two promotion places with another tidy goal this weekend.”

Elliot beat off competition from Port Vale’s Jamie Proctor and Leyton Orient’s Paul Smyth.
