Exeter City midfielder Harry Kite's stunning strike against Port Vale is the Sky Bet League One Goal of the Month winner for August.
As the ball looped out of the penalty area towards him, Kite’s only thought was driving his right boot over the ball to keep his volley down. He timed the contact to sweet perfection.
Kite said: “I’m buzzing! Like I said at the time, I knew it was a sweet strike as soon as I hit it and to be able to win Goal of the Month in my first month in League One is a real privilege.
“There was one a bit like that in training a couple of days before that came out to me and I put too much on it and sliced it, so I thought there’s plenty of power on the ball so just try and direct it into the corner as much as I could and luckily I got really good contact on it.
“There were some great goals in there that I was up against so it makes it even sweeter.”
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “In a repeat of the League Two final day fixture, the result couldn’t have been any more different as Exeter & Port Vale met at St James’ Park, freed from the shackles of the title pressure and fresh from a summer break.
“Harry Kite’s superb volleyed finish really set the tone for the afternoon, with Exeter taking their first three points in League One and now adding the Goal of the Month award to the afternoon’s achievements.”
Kite beat off competition from Charlton Athletic’s Sean Clare, Ipswich Town’s Tyreece John-Jules and Wycombe Wanderers Dominic Gape.
Well done, Harry!
