Goal of the Month - August

The 2014/15 season is now well underway and it is time to vote for your first whufc.com Goal of the Month!

August saw a number outstanding goals scored by West Ham United sides at all levels, with the first team, U21s and U18s all on target in spectacular fashion.

The first two candidates were both scored in the Marathonbet Cup victory over Italian Serie A club UC Sampdoria on Saturday 9 August - the first being a solo goal from the recently departed Mohamed Diame and the second being the dramatic late winner created and finished by teenage centre-back Reece Burke (pcitured).


The 3-1 Barclays Premier League victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday 23 August was also marked by two superb West Ham strikes - the first being Mauro Zarate's spectacular volley and the second being a counter-attacking goal of the highest order finished by the in-form Stewart Downing.

The final goal nominated for the August award was a towering header scored by another young defender, Emmanuel Onariase, in the 3-3 Barclays U18 Premier League draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday 30 August.
