Carlisle United youth-team player Taylor Charters has been nominated for League Football Education’s Goal of the Month.

First-year apprentice Charters netted in the win for Darren Edmondson’s players against Port Vale.

Charters’ citation from the judges says: “Carlisle United first-year apprentice Taylor Charters chose power over precision, but produced the same result as his leftfooted hit flew into the top corner.”

The winner of the April award will become the ninth player to seal a place in LFE’s Goal of the Season contest, joining Bolton’s Luca Connell, Bradley Webb, of Bristol City, Bolton’s Callum King-Harmes, Oxford United’s Owen James, Lewis Farmer of Sheffield Wednesday, Preston North End lad Adam O’Reilly, MK Dons’ Jenson Wright and Dan Bradshaw, from Forest Green Rovers.

Charters is up against Derby County’s Max Bird, Preston starlets Jack Baxter and Adam O’Reilly, Sheffield Wednesday’s Liam Shaw, Doncaster’s Elliott Walker, Kane Thompson-Sommer, of Birmingham and Gillingham’s Miquel Scarlett.

To vote, visit with Charters’ strike “goal C”.

Voting will be open until midday on Friday.
