Joey wins November's Cherwell Goal of the Month!

Barnsley thunderbolt wins in a landslide vote...

13 December 2017

Joey van den Berg's thunderous 25-yard strike against Barnsley won the fans' vote for Cherwell Goal of the Month for November!

Despite the fact it was only his second goal for the club, it was a strike with real technique and got the crowd on their feet as the Royals won 3-0 on the night...

A whopping 74% of votes went to Van den Berg's strike, with Sone Aluko's well-worked finish against Derby County placing second in our monthly fan survey.

Speaking after accepting the award, he said: "It feels pretty good, I didn't know that mine was the only pretty goal that was scored! So it's good that people voted for me, so thank you.

"Like I said before, I used to play higher up the pitch and get more opportunities to shoot but if there's space, I will always try. 

"This was just a moment where I went for it, and it went very well!"
