Shaun Bartlett scores the Goal of the Season
Shaun Bartlett scores the Goal of the Season
Shaun Bartlett's long-range volley for Charlton against Leicester has been named as Match of the Day's Goal of the Season.

The South African's stunning strike won the prestigious BBC award ahead of goals from Thierry Henry of Arsenal and Chelsea's Mario Stanic.

  The top three
1. Shaun Bartlett - Charlton v Leicester
2: Thierry Henry - Arsenal v Man Utd
3: Mario Stanic - Chelsea v West Ham
The top three had been selected by BBC Sport's football pundits.

The winning goal was announced by Gary Lineker on Saturday's Match of the Day - as the BBC ended its current run of Premiership highlights programmes.

Ten goals- eight Premiership and two FA Cup - had been included on a shortlist for the prize, which has become an institution over the past four decades.

Viewer Rob Ferguson from Swindon captured the prize of a May Bank Holiday weekend in Rome with tickets to see Roma v AC Milan.

Many of the game's greats have added their names to the roll of honour.
