February's GOTM nominees

Goal 1 - Arnaut Danjuma, vs Birmingham City, 6/2/21

A goal down at home to the Blues, Jack Wilshere played an intelligent pass an Arnaut Danjuma did the rest. The Dutchman bore down on his defender, shuffled his feet, opened up his body and emphatically swiped his shot home in typical style to get the Cherries on the board.

Goal 2 - Jack Wilshere, vs Birmingham City, 6/2/21

Having finally opened his Cherries scoring account in the Emirates FA Cup, Jack Wilshere also become a league goalscorer for the club when he netted with a looping header. The effort owes its place as a nominee as much for the build-up: Arnaut Danjuma, David Brooks and Adam Smith all involved as the ball was worked from one end to the other, Wilshere scoring a crucial strike as the side came from behind to win.

Goal 3 - Matt Burgess, vs Exeter City, 13/2/21

Under-18s midfielder Matt BurgessΒ is on the list with his precise powered finish in the 2-0 win over Exeter City. Played at Dorchester Town's Avenue Stadium, a well-worked team move saw the ball worked to the feet of Burgess who struck home to gain a measure of revenge over the Grecians, who knocked the Cherries out of the FA Youth Cup before Christmas.

Goal 4 - Philip Billing, vs Rotherham United, 17/2/21

Philip Billing had already scored one winner in the month and notched another with a goal to beat the Millers at Vitality Stadium. Not for the first time in this list, Adam Smith was heavily involved, galloping onto Sam Surridge's pass before picking out the Dane. Billing's first touch was confident, his second authoritative - and enough to seal three big Championship points.
