May Goal of the Month

It’s time once again to cast your eye over 5 of the best goals from the FA WSL in this month's Goal of the Month competition.

With long range efforts, volleys, headers and great solo strikes, we were not short of goals in the month of May. After working hard to whittle it down to just 5 contenders it’s now over to you to Call the Shots and vote for your favourite.



Liverpool midfielder Kelly Jones had been waiting all season to net her first goal of the campaign and she ended that wait with a cracker against Chelsea.

A good team goal, Jones got on the end of perfect in swinging cross and gave Chelsea keeper Carly Telford no chance with a well placed header.



Arsenal youngster Jordan Nobbs has started the season strongly for the Gunners and showed she is just as capable scoring goals as she is setting them up for her teammates.

When Lincoln failed to clear under pressure the ball eventually fell to Nobbs who showed superb technique to rifle the ball home.


GOAL C Kerys HARROP Everton v Birmingham

Birmingham have been the standout performers in the first half of the FA WSL season and much of that is down to strength in depth. Goals have come from a variety of players this season including this spectacular strike from Kerys Harrop.

Harrop caught Everton keeper Danielle Hill on the back foot and struck an unstoppable long range strike to help her side on to a 2-0 win



Arsenal’s Kim Little is no stranger to scoring goals and her quality shone through in this goal against Doncaster.

Little’s great first touch allowed the midfielder the extra yard of space to let the ball sit up and then hit a well stuck volley past the helpless Helen Alderson.



The final goal comes from Chelsea’s Danni Buet. Not content with second place in last month’s competition Buet has come up with another cracker to try and get your votes.

Showing she is just as effective from a dead ball situation as she is in open play, this free kick completely wrong footing Lincoln keeper Nicola Hobbs, proving to be the only goal in her sides win.
