Ethan Walker has been nominated for the League Football Education’s (LFE) November goal of the month award for his strike against Blackpool.
The first year scholar struck inside the first minute of the youth team’s match away to the Tangerine Army in mid-November.
Jack Armer headed a crossfield ball into the path of the 16-year-old, who drove into the area from deep on the left flank before unleashing a venomous strike into the near side top corner.
