Tranmere Talk’s Goal of the Month – December

By Josh Roberts

The month of December saw Tranmere’s promotion push finally take shape with the team gaining form and gathering momentum going into the New Year.

December also saw some fantastic goals scored by the likes of Connor Jennings who scored six goals in total in the month and features on this list twice alongside Adam Buxton and Andy Cook.

Andy Cook vs Torquay United 09/12/17

Tranmere’s big no.9 scored a trademark goal as he wrapped up a 3 – 0 over Torquay early in December.

Scoring his second of the afternoon, the thanks has to go to young left back Eddie Clarke who played a major part in the goal.

Picking up the ball in his own half, Clarke showed his pace as he left three United players in his wake before crossing to Cook who headed into the back of the net.

Adam Buxton vs Sutton United 23/12/17

Adam Buxton has threatened to score a ‘worldie’ this season on a few occasions with long range efforts, but it will take a lot for him to top this goal.

A free kick positioned just outside the area, the right back stepped up and delicately curled the ball home into the far right corner, getting a little bit of help from the post in the process.

It wasn’t just an important goal in the game but also for Tranmere’s season as a whole as it helped Rovers to a 1 – 3 win over title chasing Sutton.

A game not content with one superb strike, Connor Jennings arguably took the limelight away from Buxton with this goal.

A cross from Dylan Mottley-Henry was only partially cleared and Jennings took advantage to latch onto the volley from 25 yards out.

It was unstoppable from the no.11, a volley hit as pure and sweet as you’ll ever see.

With six goals in December is was more than likely Jennings would feature more than once for this month’s list.

This goal started in the hands of Scott Davies who’s quick thinking released the eventual goal scorer Jennings in midfield.

A piece of luck saw his attempted pass to Eddie Clarke bounce into the path of Ollie Norburn who looked up and dinked the ball over the top to Jennings.

He brought the ball down, dropped his shoulder evading one defender and poked the ball home to finish off a classy move.
