Judge Wins Goal Award

Volley against Rochdale wins monthly accolade

25 March 2022

Colchester United's Alan Judge is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for February, receiving 47% of the public vote.

Judge opened the scoring for the U's on the first day of the month, volleying into the top corner from thirty five yards out.

The thirty three year old said: "I haven't won anything for a little while, so it's nice to get something again. It's a nice accolade to have."

"I had a little check over my shoulder before the ball came to me. It was a really windy day and we had the wind with us so I just thought I'd have a go, aim straight at the 'keeper and see where it went. I caught it sweet, it moved a bit and it caused a problem and it went in.”

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: "Alan Judge’s ability from distance is well known to most Brentford and Ipswich fans, but this goal has to be close to the top of his personal list of screamers."

"This is all about having the awareness of where the goal is and the confidence to take the strike on…it was simply sensational and no surprise that he of all people could pull it off."

Judge beat off competition from Mansfield’s Rhys Oates and Barrow’s John Rooney.
