SCOTT Twine is a contender for League Two goal of the season thanks to his exploits at Newport County AFC and now he is in the running for the League One award.

The 21-year-old showed Swindon Town supporters what Exiles fans already knew when he smashed home a stunning strike in the Robins’ win at Ipswich.

Twine spend the first half of the campaign on loan at Rodney Parade and he won goal of the month for his stunning strike at Cambridge, while goals against Colchester and Oldham will also be contenders for County’s best goal of 2020/21.

Alas, his form led to Swindon recalling the attacking midfielder and he scored a stunning, dipping 30-yarder at Portman Road.

“It was a wonder strike and you won’t see many better goals than that, it was a tremendous strike,” said manager John Sheridan.

Promotion-chasing County made a bid to sign Twine on a permanent deal but manager Michael Flynn admits the bright prospect is destined for a higher level if Swindon decide to cash in.

Exiles supporters will watch the strike for Swindon with pride... and envy.
