Derby County Under-18s defender Jaden Charles’ superb free-kick against Newcastle United has been nominated for the League Football Education’s Goal of the Month for February.
The second-year scholar is no stranger to finding the back of the net from his set pieces and he did so again with a sublime left-footed free-kick that bent wonderfully into the top right corner from just outside the area.
The goal drew the Under-18s level with the Magpies ahead of half-time, however, two second-half goals from the visitors handed Newcastle the three points in a 3-1 victory.
Charles’ goal is one of eight up for the award from players across the Academy leagues. The winner of each month’s award will then be placed on the 2019/20 Goal of the Season Shortlist.
