Hamilton winner claims Goal of the Month gong

3 February 2018

Flying winger CJ Hamilton has scooped the supporters' Goal of the Month gong for January for his match-winning goal against Cheltenham Town.

In a game of high drama, Hamilton popped up in the 94th minute to slam the ball home and earn Stags a thrilling three points in a 3-2 win, after he had earlier scored his first league goal for the club to make it 1-1.

And among a shortlist of eight goals, Hamilton has emerged victorious with 39 percent of the overall vote.

Striker Jimmy Spencer came second in the vote, himself scoring a 94th minute winner a week after Hamilton, in a 2-1 away win against Morecambe. The goal, which was originally credited to left-back Mal Benning, was handed to Spencer following a meeting of the Dubious Goals Committee. The strike against Shrimps received 16 percent of the vote. 

Frontman Kane Hemmings came third in the poll, as his opener against Carlisle United on New Year's Day received 15 percent of the vote.
