Alan McCormack – LUTON TOWN 8-2 Yeovil Town – 5th August
Luton Town midfielder Alan McCormack is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for August, receiving 45% of the public vote.
Standing 35 yards out at a corner, McCormack strode forward to a dropping ball and let fly with an unstoppable dipping volley over the crowd of players in front of him.
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “McCormack has got off to a flying start at Luton Town, picking up a string of man of the match awards, and scoring this outrageous goal at the start of August.
“He’ll be hoping life in Sky Bet League Two remains as smooth sailing for the rest of the season as he aims to push Luton towards promotion.”
McCormack said: “I remember we were going through a corner routine, but it was actually a corner routine went wrong.
“The lad who was taking it was meant to do something else and the ball came to me completely free at the edge of the box and I remember the ball coming to me.
“My first thought was don’t try and hit it as hard as you can, just try and get a good connection and just remember looking at it and seeing it going through all of the bodies and into the back of the net.
“It was a nice feeling on the debut, especially with the win that went with it.”
McCormack beat off competition from Lincoln City’s Billy Knott and Newport County’s Frank Nouble.
