Crawley Town striker Tom Nichols wins SkyBet League Two Goal of the Month award
Crawley Town midfielder Tom Nichols is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for March, receiving 43% of the public vote.
Nichols contributed two touches to a delightful team goal, both of them impudent flicks. The first changed the direction of play, the second delicately glanced the ball home from six yards.
Nichols said: “It’s always nice to win an award, it sounds like a cliche but it really was a team goal that summed up a brilliant team performance on the day.”

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “With games coming thick and fast throughout March there was barely time to breath, but that didn’t stop Crawley from playing some delightful football in the build-up to this goal, which was finished in some style by Nichols.
“It was the first of three goals for Nichols in a month where the Red Devils staked a claim for the Play-Offs before falling away.”
Nichols beat off competition from Mansfield Town’s George Maris & Stephen Quinn.
