Newcastle United FC
Ayoze Perez has won the NUFC TV goal of the season award for the 2016/17 campaign.
The Magpies scored 85 league goals on their way to winning the Sky Bet Championship, and we shortlisted ten of them before asking supporters to choose their favourite.
And Perez's strike against Ipswich Town, which came after a superb team move which involved every outfield player straight from the kick off, won with 26 per cent of the vote.
That came just ahead of Jonjo Shelvey's wonderful goal in the 6-0 win at Queens Park Rangers, which gained 25 per cent. Christian Atsu's remarkable free kick against Cardiff was third with 13 per cent.
Perez also won the NUFC TV goal of the season award in 2014/15 for an audacious backheeled flick against West Bromwich Albion, and will receive the 2016/17 trophy when the players report back for pre-season training next month.
Thousands of supporters voted on nufc.co.uk and Ben Crowther from Lincolnshire was chosen at random to win a signed brand new 2017/18 home shirt.
