Tranmere Talk’s Goal of the Month – November

By Josh Roberts

Tranmere Rovers played six games in the month of November, away to Gateshead and Macclesfield and home to Dagenham & Redbridge and Maidstone in the league as well as a First Round FA cup tie and subsequent replay. 

These are the four goals from November we here at Tranmere Talk thought were the best from the month.

Goal 1 – James Norwood vs Dagenham & Redbridge 11/11/17

Tranmere’s No.10 opened the scoring against Dagenham & Redbridge after a clinical counter that started defending a long throw-in. A header from Richie Sutton allowed Dylan Mottley-Henry to clear, Andy Cook headed into the path of James Norwood. The pair played a lovely one-two that allowed Norwood to advance forward and finish off with a shot across the ‘keeper after leaving Dagenham no.4 on his backside.

Goal 2 – Ollie Norburn vs Dagenham & Redbridge 11/11/17

Norburn doubled Tranmere’s lead against Dagenham with a fantastic volley at the back post from a Liam Ridehalgh corner. The midfielder showed lovely technique to get over the ball to see his first time effort on the volley fly into the goal.

Goal 3 – Larnell Cole vs Macclesfield Town 21/11/17

The second counter attacking goal on this list, this time from a corner during the away fixture at Macclesfield. A corner swung in was cleared by Steve McNulty, Eddie Clarke picked up the second ball and started to the attack. The left back passed Norwood who played a pivotial part in the goal bringing the ball forward 60 yards before sliding a pass through the retreating Town defence to Norburn. The no.15 squared the ball to Cole who put Rovers into the lead with his shot into the roof of the net.

Goal 4 – Andy Cook vs Maidstone United 25/11/17

Andy Cook is the last on this list for his goal and Tranmere’s second against Maidstone. Norwood and Connor Jennings were involved heavily with a great piece of interplay between the two. Jennings crossed into Cook who brought the ball under control and out of his feet to poke the ball into the goal.
