WINNER: Jordan Shipley Awarded With Goal Of The Month

16 November 2017

Coventry City midfielder Jordan Shipley is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for October, receiving 47% of the public vote.

Shipley’s first goal as a professional will stay with him forever. His pinpoint free-kick was struck with pace and unerring accuracy around the edge of the Luton wall.

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “Academy graduate Jordan has made just five league appearances and already has a Goal of the Month award to his name.

“The goal itself was a superbly struck free-kick which nestled in the top corner and secured a fantastic win for the Sky Blues.

“It shows an enormous amount of self-confidence for a youngster to want to step up and take a free kick in that position and an enormous amount of faith from his manager and team mates to let him!

“All were rewarded for a great decision and he will be at the front of the queue when it comes to taking the next one!”

Shipley said: “It’s lovely to get this award and great to be voted by the fans. I didn’t really think too much of it, just stepped up to it and hit it fairly well and it’s gone in the top corner. “It’s definitely the best goal I’ve ever scored, the way it came about, against Luton, away from home, I couldn’t have imagined it any better.

“I’ve got to keep working hard, get in amongst it and take my chances when they come.”

Shipley beat off competition from Port Vale’s Ben Whitfield and Wycombe Wanderer’s Ebere Eze.
