⚽️ Trust 1,000 goal countdown: No. 9️⃣1️⃣3️⃣ Jack Stacey

One that still sticks in the memory...

2 August 2018

With just TWO days to go until Matt Taylor's side kick-off the season against Carlisle, ‘The 1000th Goal’ project counts you down to the game with a look back at some of the most iconic goals scored under supporters' ownership.

The 1,000th goal project has been set up as the Trust will more than likely be celebrating reaching 1,000 league goals under supporters ownership this coming season. The tally currently stands at 982 league goals, including play-offs.

The season is so close now, you can almost feel it!

Today's featured goal certainly made any City fan feel the whole range of emotions one could possibly imagine at a football game. Here's the culmination of what is undoubtedly one of the greatest ever nights at St James Park, goal number 913 under the Trust.

With City’s enthralling League Two play-off semi-final against Carlisle United all set to go to extra time, up stepped Jack Stacey to score a stunning winner which sent the Grecians to Wembley in 2017.

Having moved in-field to receive the ball from Jake Taylor and with the game deep into stoppage time, Stacey took one touch to set himself before firing an unstoppable left footed strike into the right-hand corner of the Carlisle net and win the two-legged tie 6-5 for City.
