Queen’s Park full-back, Andrew Robertson, will always remember his first goal in senior football as it was selected from a list of 10 fine strikes as the SFL Goal of the Month winner for November.
The competition was judged in January and Robertson’s thumping strike against East Stirlingshire from close to 30 yards out was chosen as the best one due to the power and accuracy of his shot and the quality of the build-up play from his team-mates.
The 18-year-old said: “I knew when the ball was laid back to me that I was going to hit it first time. As soon as I hit it, I knew that it was a good connection and that it was on target. It came off the bar on its way in and it was a great feeling especially with the game being at Hampden.”
Unfortunately for Robertson and his team-mates, East Stirling hit back to win the contest 2-1 although the latest product from the Queen’s youth set-up did have the satisfaction of hitting a leveller against Elgin City in a 1-1 draw in December with the youngster saying: “To score two goals in my first season at senior level is great especially as I never scored that many at youth level.”
