A League Two Soccer footballer who hails from Glenn, Newry is in the running for the English League Two Goal of the Season.

Shay McCartan hails from Glenn and is at present on loan to Lincoln City from Bradford City. He has also played on the Northern Ireland squad.

The twenty five year old forward's cracker goal for Lincoln against Swindon, 12 January is presently in the lead of the competition at 29% and his friends from Newry want it to stay that way so get voting. 

There's only a 2% gap between Shay and nearest competitor Hiram Boateng so your vote will certainly count.

Speaking about the goal Shay said “I knew it was a good goal because I could see by the lad’s reactions. It was funny because I’d not trained well all week, so they took the mickey out of me a little bit with not training too well then scoring a goal like that so it was a good feeling.”
