⚽️ Trust Goal #9️⃣9️⃣5️⃣: Aaron Martin

Watch as Aaron Martin heads home his first goal for the Grecians

14 September 2018

Last Saturday's match saw the Grecians put five past Notts County at St James Park, moving us within the final ten goals of the landmark 1000th Goal under Supporters' Trust ownership.

Today's featured goal, No.9️⃣9️⃣5️⃣ under The Trust, is kindly sponsored by North Devon Grecians.

With City comfortably seeing out the game in stoppage time, substitute Matt Jay forced a corner off a Notts County defender.

From the resulting set piece, the ball was quickly played out to Man of the Match Pierce Sweeney, whose curled cross from the edge of the area found summer signing Aaron Martin's head for his first goal for the Grecians.

City's emphatic win, the first time they had scored five goals in a home game since beating Sheffield Wednesday by the same score back in 2010, moved them back into the automatic promotion places and within 3 points of the top of the table.
