Rodney’s Goal Voted Best Of 2017

12 January 2018

Pools fans have been having their say on their favourite goal of 2017 and Devante Rodney’s second goal against Doncaster Rovers has come out on top.

The front man’s sensational run and finish on the final day of last season looked set to keep Pools in the Football League only for events elsewhere to condemn the Club to relegation.

Teenage Rodney took control of the ball from Padraig Amond’s pass before sidestepping inside two Rovers defenders and the goalkeeper to ram it in to the net and put Pools 2-1 in front.

The goal set of scenes of pandemonium inside Victoria Park as Pools caught sight of League Two safety only for rivals Newport County to snatch a last-gasp winner to rescue themselves.

However, Pools fans still voted for Rodney’s strike as their favourite of the past twelve months as that beat off stiff competition from Nicky Deverdics' stunning free-kick against Tranmere Rovers which finished second.
