Owls forward Marco Matias has won the Mitre Goal of the Year at the Football League Awards 2016.
Matias received the award at the gala ceremony at Manchester Central on Sunday evening in front of over 600 guests from clubs, sponsors and the football industry.
With a total of over 4,800 goals scored in Football League competitions in 2015, each of the 72 Football League clubs nominated their best goal from the 2015 calendar year.
In conjunction with Mitre and the viewers of Channel 5’s Football League Tonight show, the goals were narrowed down to a shortlist of five, with the overall winner being decided by a vote on the night at The Football League Awards.
Matias’ stunner against Leeds United at Elland Road was voted as the pick of the bunch and delighted to be named the winner, he said:
“I am very proud and want to thank Sheffield Wednesday, the supporters, my family and everybody in the room tonight for voting for me.
“I think this is my best goal in my career and of course I want to score more, but until now, this is my best.”
