Erin wins inaugural Jamie Skinner award

Erin wins inaugural Jamie Skinner award - 2 Jul 2014 - Women's Football NewsErin Cuthbert, of Rangers FC Girls, has won the first Jamie Skinner Goal of the Season Award, in association with Trans World Soccer Strips 4 Trips. 
Named in memory of 13-year-old Edinburgh youngster Jamie, who tragically collapsed and died on the pitch while playing for Tynecastle FC last year, the award aims to find the grassroots goal of the season.
The Scotland youth international opened the scoring in the 2013 Under-17s age group Scottish Cup Final with a solo effort reminiscent of Maradona's goal against England in 1986.
Voting took place over the space of two weeks, on the youthfootballscotland.co.uk website. The competition was open to any goal caught on camera at a youth match in 2013-14. Over 50 nominees were put forward, before being whittled down to a shortlist of 15. Following the social media vote, the five most popular goals advanced to the final.
Cuthbert pipped Dean Burgess of Edina Hibs Under-13s, who scored a 40-yard wonder strike in his side's Scottish Cup final victory, to the top prize. The finalists were Alex Thomson of Syngenta Juveniles Under-14s, Scott Clark of Milngavie Wanderers Under-15s and Dylan Moore of Hutchison Vale Under-13s.
In addition to the public poll, the final saw many well known football faces cast their vote. Scotland defender Ifeoma Dieke, BBC's Richard Gordon and Livingston FC assistant manager Mark Burchill were amongst those who gave Cuthbert's goal their vote.
Cuthbert said: "I am so pleased to have won, especially with the quality of goals on show. It was the Scottish Cup Final and I was just so happy to help the team clinch the treble. Honoured to the first winner of the Jamie Skinner Goal of the Season Award - hope he would have liked the goal."
