The EFL released the following statement regarding Tom’s award:
Crawley Town midfielder Tom Nichols is the Sky Bet League Two Goal of the Month winner for March, receiving 43% of the public vote.
Nichols contributed two touches to a delightful team goal, both of them impudent flicks. The first changed the direction of play, the second delicately glanced the ball home from six yards.
Nichols said: “It’s always nice to win an award, it sounds like a cliche but it really was a team goal that summed up a brilliant team performance on the day.”
Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports Pundit Don Goodman said: “With games coming thick and fast throughout March there was barely time to breathe, but that didn’t stop Crawley from playing some delightful football in the build-up to this goal, which was finished in some style by Nichols.
“It was the first of three goals for Nichols in a month where the Red Devils staked a claim for the Play-Offs.”
