First ever LEAGUE goal

FIRST EVER FGR League Goal 2017-18 sponsored by Simba


Last year we’d to wait until the second match ( against Sutton) for Matt Tubbs to pop up and score our season’s opener. Apart from 2013, when Marcus Kelly started the goal feast against Hyde, goals and wins have been fairly scare on the first day of the season.

In 2012 we'd to wait for the 89th minute for Yan to scorer. But in 2013, the opening scorer ( prize won by Fartvvs ) Marcus Kelly, hit a hat trick in the 8-0 win against Hyde. In 2014 Kevin won when Lee Hughes scored in the 47th minute at Southport and we won, but ended up with no points. In 2015 Chopsy won with a memorable Jon Parkin goal in the 74th minute.

Our strikers need to get in the action early - will anyone kick off the goals at Barnet? ( between 1 and 90 minutes) Or will it be in the away match against Mansfield ?(between 91 and 180 minutes) Will our new boys do the business? Will midfield chip in the goals? The match against MK Dons will be ignored, as we are looking for the first league goal.

So your prediction is for the player who will be first on the scoresheet for FGR in a league match and as a tie breaker when will it be scored?
( minutes into the season). Own goals for either side do not count! (In the case of an own goal scored 1st, the next goal will be the winner)

No editing after post unless a player leaves the club or is seriously injured before the start of the season, your entry must be in before 3pm 5th August. (Barnet at home)
A prize of £20 will go to whoever predicts the first goalscorer and is closest to the time when the goal is scored.

It will obviously be an own goal in the 14th minute

Own goals don't count Ray - are you joining up for the season? (Pitchfork)

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
