🏆 Hiram Boateng wins Sky Bet League Two goal of the month award

Stunner against Port Vale beats off competition from Danny Bulman and Mickey Demetriou

10 May 2019

Exeter City midfielder Hiram Boateng is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for April, receiving 59 per cent of the public vote.

There were shades of Bergkamp, as three exquisite pieces of skill rolled into one movement.

A sweet chest control as he arched his back, delicate control on the turn and a rasping volley.

Lead Sky Bet EFL goal of the month judge and Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman, said: “What an incredibly inventive piece of skill from the Exeter midfielder, three touches to take him from a long, hopeful, ball forward to the ball nestling in the net.

“Every single touch was executed to absolute perfection – it’s a once in a lifetime goal.”

Hiram added: “It is nice to win the award for Sky Bet League Two goal of the month, especially as it is a fan-voted award.

“I have seen the goal back a couple of times from my mentions on Twitter. It is hard to miss it because of that, but I think the novelty is starting to wear off now.

"It was a good ball from Woody (Craig Woodman) though and I have controlled it well and stuck in the top corner.”

Boateng beat off competition from Crawley Town’s Danny Bulman and Newport County’s Mickey Demetriou.
