Neal Ardley selects great winner as club's entry

A brilliant winner from Kevin Sainte-Luce has been selected as AFC Wimbledon’s best goal of 2014.

We asked supporters to nominate their favourite goals of last year via social media so that we could put together a shortlist of five for Neal Ardley to choose from.

The Wimbledon manager selected Sainte-Luce’s dramatic winner at Newport in February, 2014, as his choice and this will now be our club entry for the Mitre Goal of the Year.

Kevin, who joined Gateshead last month, was at his best in the celebrations that followed too as his trademark somersaults summed up Wimbledon’s late joy in Wales.

Our entry was chosen from Football League competition during the calendar year, including the Sky Bet Football League, the Capital One Cup and the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.
