December Goal of the Month nominees revealed


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

The nominations have been revealed for December's Goal of the Month competition, sponsored by Strategic Solutions. 

Dominic Solanke has two strikes selected, while Euan Pollock from the development squad and Michael Dacosta Gonzalez from the under-18s are also up for the accolade. 

Voting will take place on the Twitter poll, with representatives from Strategic Solutions presenting the award once a winner has been decided. 

Dacosta Gonzalez's goal came on just the second day of the month as the under-18s travelled to Exeter for the third round of the FA Youth Cup. 

Having already headed Alan Connell's side in front, his solo goal, which saw him beat three City defenders, gave the youth team a cushion at St James' Park as they went on to progress to round four with a 2-0 win. 

Solanke's first strike also came right at the start of the month and was one of the quickest goals from kick-off ever recorded. 

Friday night under the lights against Fulham was earmarked as perhaps the biggest Championship game of the season so far and the forward sent Craven Cottage into disbelief after he fired home Philip Billing's ball over the top six seconds into the half. 

As the development squad looked to stake their claim in Group A of the Premier League Cup, Pollock finished a superb team goal in a 4-0 win over West Brom at Vitality Stadium. 

With the Baggies having recorded three wins from three in the competition so far, they couldn't stop the Cherries that night, with the striker's goal the pick of the bunch after a move that started in their own half.  

Finally, Solanke's second nomination comes from the 3-0 home win against Cardiff City, the last game of the calendar year for Scott Parker's side. 

He finished off Billing's backheel with a cool low strike in front of the Steve Fletcher Stand as the team went on to pick up all three points with a convincing victory.

Our extended thanks to Strategic Solutions for sponsoring the award.
