City’s Lee Frecklington is the winner of the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month for August.
The Imps’ club captain scored the opening goal in the 3-1 win over Notts County, a controlled side-foot volley from the edge of the area which flew into the corner of the goal past the despairing dive of County stopper, Ross Fitzsimmons.
Naturally, Lee was delighted with the strike and it’s one he’ll cherish for quite some time.
“That is one of those that don’t happen very often in your career. To execute it like that, and for it to go exactly where you want it to go, it doesn’t happen very often, so I was really pleased to see it go in.” He said.
“As a midfielder, you often find yourself in that position on the edge of the box waiting for the ball to hopefully get knocked out. As it is coming down out the sky you are thinking ‘I want to volley this’, and as it drops I am thinking about lacing it, but at the last minute just decided to try to side-foot it. Sometimes you are a bit more accurate with that, and I was lucky that it went exactly where I wanted it to.
“I would like to think there will be more goals but whether I will hit any as sweet as that I am not sure. But I will definitely be doing my best to try and get a few more.”
Frecklington beat off competition from James Norwood of Tranmere Rovers and Michael Timlin of Stevenage to pick up the award.
