The new season signals the return of LFE’s Goal of the Month and eight fantastic goals have made the cut to get the competition underway for the 2017-18 campaign.

This month has been dominated by precise volleys, with Luton Town’s Arthur Read and Portsmouth pair Freddie Read and Matt Mayes all converting stunning efforts.

Cambridge United defender Jordan Norville-Williams showcased his ability from set-pieces with a pinpoint free-kick, while winger Liam Sole (MK Dons) finished off a jinking run with unerring accuracy.

Finlay Sinclair-Smith (Blackpool) and Harry Benns (Port Vale) are also in the mix after finding the top corner with powerful long-range strikes, as well as Nottingham Forest’s prolific midfielder Will Swan, who combined neat footwork and strength to create the space to rifle a shot into the roof of the net from a tight angle.
