Jan gotm

January was a fantastic month for Newport County AFC. The amazing Emirates FA Cup run continued with two historic results against Championship club Leeds United as well a draw with Champions League contenders Tottenham Hotspur. Our league form was also superb, check out a selection of four of the best goals from the month of January below, then vote for your favourite!

GOAL ONE - Shawn McCoulsky's unbelieveable header against Leeds

He has been in hot form all season, but this goal is perhaps his best of the season so far. '#McGoalsky' found the net with a brilliant header late on in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round, leaping like a salmon and burying the opportunity in to the roof of the net. Shawn's bullet header meant County had beaten Championship club Leeds United and they were through to the Fourth Round!


GOAL TWO - Padraig Amond's exquisite accurate finish against Spurs

The Irishman is also in fantastic form of late and he would not pass up on the opportunity of putting Sky Bet League 2 Newport County AFC 1-0 up against Premiership, Champions League contenders Tottenham Hotspur. Amond easily beat Trippier in the air and his powerful effort left Michel Vorm with no chance. What a goal!


GOAL THREE - Robbie Willmott's super strike against Exeter City

What a finish this is from midfielder Robbie Willmott. He can strike them, and he proves that with this impressive drive from all of 25-yards! A fantastic backheel from Padraig Amond meant Dan Butler could play Willmott in, the midfielder did the rest giving the 'keeper no chance from range. This is a goal worthy of winning any game, and that is exactly what it did when County overcame Exeter 2-1!


GOAL FOUR - Willmott drives another sweet strike in from distance

Always eyeing up an oppurtunity to hit a shot from range, Willmott bagged his second goal in successive games here with a very similar strike to his belter against Exeter in this win away at Grimsby. Again, Robbie has left the 'keeper with absolutely no chance finding the bottom left corner of the goal superbly well.
