Sta­tion’s search for best County goal

Stockport Times West - - PURE FM -

IR­ISH In­ter­na­tional Foot­baller Stephanie Roche made head­lines world­wide re­cently when her stun­ning goal for the Ir­ish Women’s Na­tional League team Peamount United was put on a short­list of three for FIFA’s Puskas Award for the best goal of 2014.

She is up against goals scored at the World Cup in Brazil by Manch­ester United’s Robin van Per­sie and Real Madrid’s James Ro­dríguez.

Stock­port’s Ra­dio sta­tion Pure 107.8FM is look­ing for the best goal scored by a Stock­port County player in 2014 and they want you to get in­volved.

Pure County pre­sen­ter Si­mon Kelsey tells us more... FROM Scott Spencer’s out­landish half-vol­ley from the cor­ner of the penalty area to get the Hat­ters back in to their FA Cup tie against Ch­ester in Oc­to­ber, to Phil Jevons’ cheeky 40-yard chip over Jas Singh against Soli­hull in Fe­bru­ary – there have been some stun­ning goals scored by County play­ers this year.

It’s an hon­our and a priv­i­lege to have been in­volved in bring­ing them all to you live on Pure County through Jon Keighren’s out­stand­ing com­men­tary.

This De­cem­ber we’re search­ing for the great­est goal scored by a player in blue and white this cal­en­dar year – and we need your help.

Whether it was a daz­zling solo ef­fort, a well-worked team goal or just a spec­tac­u­lar fin­ish, we want your nom­i­na­tions.

Send them in to us at stu­dio@pur­era­ be­tween now and Satur­day, De­cem­ber 20, – we’ll com­pile a short­list and the top three will be pub­lished on the Pure Ra­dio Face­book page so lis­ten­ers can vote for their favourite.

The win­ner will be an­nounced on Pure County on Jan­uary 10, 2015, two days be­fore FIFA an­nounce who has won the Puskas Award.
