SKY BET: Jamie Devitt wins March Goal of the Month

Midfielder bags monthly award

19 April 2019

Carlisle United midfielder Jamie Devitt is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for March, receiving 45% of the public vote.

The key to this strike was Devitt’s judgement of when to strike the ball rolling across his path. Leaving it as late as possible, he was able to arrow it unstoppably into the far corner. 

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “It’s always nice to see a goal from distance. One of the hardest skills in football is to get a pure strike from a pass that is coming across your body. 

“Devitt made the slightest of adjustments to his stride, then struck the ball while still on the move, sending it crashing into the Cambridge goal via the crossbar ... a technically brilliant goal.’’ 

Devitt said: “It was a good run from Callum so I made sure I got into space when he started to cut back in towards the box.  

“He rolled it in front of me and it was on for the shot, so I went for it. It was nice to see it go in.  

“Before the game I’d been talking about goals with my son Mason and it was him who said I had to do the Fortnite dance. It probably didn’t look the best but that was for him.

"Winning things like this is made more special when it's been voted by for the fans. I'd like to thank everybody who took the time to vote for the goal.

"It reallly does mean a lot to get backing like this - hopefully there'll be a few more to vote for between now and the end of the season!" 

Devitt beat off competition from Colchester United’s Frank Nouble and Yeovil Town’s Ryan Seager.
