Tranmere Talk’s Goal of the Month – October

By Josh Roberts

Tranmere Rovers played six games in the month of October, hosting Leyton Orient, FC Halifax Town and local rivals Chester FC at Prenton Park and taking to the road to visit Hartlepool United, Aldershot Town and FC Halifax Town in the FA Cup. 

These are the goals from October that deserved to be nominated for the Super White’s goal of the month.

Goal 1 – Connor Jennings vs FC Halifax Town 14/10/17

Jennings opened the scoring for Rovers in the FA Cup tie away to the Shaymen finishing past the goalkeeper’s near post after good work for James Norwood and Ollie Norburn. Norwood played a high ball down into space which was gathered by Norburn who after facing his own goal turned superbly and threaded a lovely ball through for Jennings to convert.

Goal 2 – Liam Ridehalgh vs FC Halifax Town 14/10/17

With the game finely poised at 2 – 1, Liam Ridehalgh stepped up to take a free kick just outside the penalty area after Adam Buxton was brought down, giving Tranmere the opportunity to double their lead for the second time in the game. Ridehalgh curled the free kick into the top right corner giving the scrambling goalkeeper no chance.

Goal 3 – James Norwood vs FC Halifax Town 28/10/17

It took only five minutes for James Norwood to break the deadlock when Halifax came to Prenton Park. Starting with a throw in on the near side, a neat passing move involving Mitch Duggan, Jay Harris, Gerry McDonagh and Dylan Mottley-Henry resulted in a tantalising cross put into the middle by Harris and Norwood was on hand to covert and score.

Goal 4 – Dylan Mottley-Henry vs FC Halifax Town 28/10/17

The young on-loan Barnsley winger finally opened his Tranmere account with the fourth and final goal in what was an impressive all-round performance by Rovers. A loose pass in in defence from Halifax was punished was the pace of Mottley-Henry as he nicked it to steal the ball and race away from the half way line to calmly slot the ball across the goalkeeper.
