Maybe it's a little early to be talking about Goal of the Season already, but when the judging panel convene to decide, Paul Heatley's name will surely be in the mix.

That's because the Crusaders ace did what he does best - scoring an outrageous goal at Seaview, this time a phenomenal acrobatic volley against Glenavon!

With the Crues trailing 1-0 early against Glenavon in front of their home fans, Stephen Baxter's men were looking for a response, and they got it in spades from Heatley.

Making the run in behind, the tricky midfielder tracked the ball over the top from Jordan Forsythe to perfection and spun his body perfectly to make connection and find the bottom corner.

Check it out below - would you have it as a contender for Goal of the Season already?
