Goal of the Month: NI Football Writers have chosen between Irish League's wonder-goals

Michael McLellan has scored the NIFWA's goal of the month for September.
Michael McLellan has scored the NIFWA's goal of the month for September.

There were two wonder-goals netted in the Danske Bank Premiership on Saturday afternoon but the NI Football Writers have nailed their colours to the mast, selecting their goal of the month.

Jordan Forsythe was just a few yards into the opposition half when he spanked home an astounding effort for Crusaders against Institute, but the NIFWA have opted instead for Michael McLellan's slightly less long range effort against Cliftonville.

It would have been hard to argue against either goal, but the skill required for McLellan to jink past a back-tracking defender before unleashing a 40 yard (plus) effort over the keeper has won the day - and the month.

Good, isn't it?

For comparison, here's Forsythe's effort for the Crues:

McLellan's goal will now enter NIFWA's Goal of the Season competition, with the winner to be announced at the NI Football Awards in May.
