Winner Stays On: Can team spirit dethrone Scholesy?


In our regular weekly feature, we present five amazing goals from around the world published on our site - and let you vote on which is your favourite!

But there is a twist: in classic 'winner stays on' format, the goal with the most votes then defends the title the following week against four new efforts.

After a brief break for the festive period, WSO is back with even more wonderful scoring efforts looking for a place in cult history.

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes made it three weeks in a row as king of Winner Stays On, blowing away the latest field of candidates with 2300 votes – more than all four challengers combined.

Second place – Fulham youngster Alex Brister’s U21 league effort – picked up a mere 489 votes. The dominant Scholes now needs two more wins to enter the Hall of Fame.

So have a watch of the video above and pick your favourite, then click the button down below to vote in the poll.

This week's options are:

Reigning champion: Paul Scholes - Chadderton Park Legends v Chadderton Park Veterans

Remember this guy? Just watch his incredible effort from a five-a-side game.


1. Tom Davis - Woking & Weybridge FC v Chertsey Harriers

Tiki-taka hits Sunday league in this amazing team goal, finished in some style by Davis.


2. Moshe Chayon – Anorthosis Famagusta FC v Apollon Limassol

Chayon scores from his own half over in Cyprus with excellent vision and technique.


3. Luke Gutteridge – Luton v Kidderminster

In-form Luton leave Kidderminster chasing shadows with a textbook example of progressive passing play.


4. Barak Itzhaki – Maccabi Tel Aviv v Maccabi Haifa

This overhead kick is visually-impressive on its own, but the timing to nail it from a long ball forward is something else.
