The Berkshire October Goal of the Month competition proved the hardest to judge yet as three goals really caught the imagination.

With thanks to guest judge – Reading FC Women’s Lily Woodham – Anja Harper of Maidenhead United Women, Naomi Paxford of Burghfield Ladies and David Nyarko of Thatcham Town’s goals were tied leading to a second run-off vote.

Of the three, it was Anja’s goal that came out on top for the Football in Berkshire panel to take Octobers award and go alongside the goals of Harry Hoath and Kacper Malinowski in our 2022/23 Goals Hall of Fame.

Harper’s strike came during a 7-0 win over Woodley United in a game where she was a 62nd minute substitute for Victoria Carvill at Bulmershe Pavillions.

Watch the top three goals, including Anja’s, for October below:
