A Football League panel pulled together the top ten strikes of last year following submissions from each of the 72 Football League clubs. The ten contenders for the award were announced on Soccer AM and viewers’ votes will now help decide the five-strong shortlist to go forward to the Football League Awards evening itself on Sunday 16th March.
Alongside the vote, there is also a prize draw to win two places at the Awards and up to £200 towards travel and accommodation.
