Andros Townsend wins Goal of the Year award

1 March 2019

Crystal Palace's Andros Townsend has won Goal of the Year at the London Football Awards.

Townsend picked up the accolade for his astonishing volley in the Eagles' 3-2 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City.

The goal was one of several last year which have lingered in the memory from the 27-year-old.

Collecting the award last night in Battersea, Townsend said: "It's a huge honour for me. It was a special occasion for myself, for Crystal Palace. To get a win at the Etihad is no mean feat. It's a goal and a win I'll never forget for the rest of my career."

Townsend's screamer was selected by a panel of 22 experts including former professional footballers such as Tony Cottee, Bob Wilson and Bobby Zamora in an evening which awarded the best in London football.
