Watch: Roy O'Donovan Won The A-League's Goal Of The Season For This Thunderbastard
By Gavin Cooney

It's been a good month for Irish strikers playing in Australia. Firstly, Andy Keogh set a new goalscoring record for the A-League, and now former Cork City striker Roy O'Donovan has been awarded the goal of the season award. O'Donovan is playing with the Central Coast Mariners, and this fantastic volley against Adelaide United earned him the gong at last night's Dolan Warren awards:

The award comes as some relief for O'Donovan after an extremely trying season, with the Mariners finishing rock bottom of the A-League,.

It is also an upturn in fortunes from a personal point of view for O'Donovan, having been hit with one of the biggest bans in A-League history in December. O'Donovan was elbowed off the ball by Manny Muscat - who shares a name with one of the of football's masters of shithousery, Kevin - and retaliated with a headbutt, which saw him hit retrospectively with an eight-match ban. Watch the incident below:

Unfortunately, O'Donovan's goal came at the end of a 4-2 defeat, meaning that he was obliged to give it a muted celebration, rather than the wild reaction it deserved.
