Over the top and into the net
Congratulations to Dumbarton midfielder Andy Geggan, who has been nominated in the latest Scottish Football League 'Goal of the Month' competition, for his wonderful strike on 80 minutes against Alloa Athletic on 18 January 2011. It was the final twist of the track in a corner-turning 4-1 win for Sons. Whether it was a 35 yard or 40 yard lob is a moot point. My match report suggested the former. Watching the video, it looks to be nearer the latter. Either way, it was superbly judged. No doubt Andy will appreciate your votes. Here are the 'before' and 'after' photos.
Incidentally, Andy did the business against East Fife on another cold evening recently - adding the third in Dumbarton's 3-1 win at Methil. The announcer decided his name was 'Greggan', and Sons' fans responded with a lusty chant of, "There's only one Andy Greggan!"
