The EFL have now released the winners of the September Goal of the Month competition for the Championship, League One and League Two.

September gave plenty of strikes to consider but the EFL have now picked each of the division winners from the past month.

The winners of the EFL Goals of the Month are chosen by a fan poll on and the shortlist for the poll is decided by a judging panel following suggestions from supporters via Twitter.

The judging panel is made up of Sky Sports’ EFL expert Don Goodman, Sky Bet Sponsorship Manager David Tweed and EFL Senior Media Manager Rob Meaden.

September’s winners are as follows:


James Maddison (Norwich City) v Middlesbrough, Sep 26 – 53%

‘Obviously it was a nice strike and it was a winning strike which made it extra special and won us the three points. To get the recognition from the fans who thought the goal was the best in the month, sometimes you have to step back and give yourself a pat on the back. The ball got played down the line and Marley Watkins didn`t give it up as he never does and nicked the ball off the defender and played it to me. I found myself in a bit of space about 25 yards out, took a touch and managed to curl it in the top corner which was a special feeling.’

League One:

Tony McMahon (Bradford City) v Northampton Town, Sep 23 – 42%

‘I`m delighted with the award, thank you to everyone that voted. I remember getting a free-kick about 20 or 25 yards out and I just fancied it. The keeper lined up and left me a big gap, so I knew if I got it over the wall, up and down, it had a good chance. I was over the moon when it flew in the top corner.’

League Two:

Shaun Miller (Carlisle United) v Barnet, Sep 16 – 50%

‘This is the first time I`ve ever been nominated for an individual award, so it`s very much appreciated. We were pushing for an equaliser and penning them back for large periods of time. It was a long goal kick and I managed to get in front of my defender, and when the first touch popped up, there wasn`t anything else in my mind but to bicycle kick it. When I glanced over my shoulder and saw it fly in, it was a great feeling.’
