The Goal of the Month has been a feature I have run for Guernsey Football Club since September 2015. It provides supporters with an opportunity to vote for their favourite goal scored by players from the local club every month in a short round up video. The two best goals that I recorded from the previous month whilst filming the club as they compete to gain promotion in the Ryman Isthmian League Division 1 South are featured in the video.

The short voting competition, which we drive on social media helps bring extra interest to the community club that was established in 2011. Showcasing the best goals from the club on social media serves as a great tool to enhance the exposure of the players online and during the later months of 2015 a wonder goal from Josh Steel obtained over 500,000 views online across various platforms.

We encourage voting on Twitter and, using other social media networks, we post the link to the video and encourage fans and supporters of the club to share it amongst their friends. We utilise the regularly produced home match day programmes to announce the winner of each month’s competition and then all nine videos are entered into the Goal of the Season competition which is decided at the end of season awards in April.
