It would have taken some goal to beat this one…
Troy Parrott won MK Dons’ Goal of the Season award this week, in a very unsurprising decision, given the quality of the goal.
His goal against AFC Wimbledon in April was always going to be given the award, with Parrott hitting form at the perfect time in the season.
His volley gained them a crucial point in the race for promotion, with the Dons set to battle it out in the playoffs.
If Parrott manages to score a goal of this standard in a playoff game, he will write his name in MK Dons history forever.

We recently caught up with MK Dons boss Liam Manning, who has been extremely impressed with Parrott throughout the second half of the season in particular.
Liam Manning on Troy Parrott
He said: “If you reflect on Troy’s season, I think it has been a really good one learning wise for him,” Manning explained when speaking about Parrott. “He had a terrific start, and then a little bit of a dip.
“But since then he has been terrific for the team. I think he has really matured, looking at him now. The consistency of him is so important, that make a player trustworthy.
“He’s so consistent, and that gets you picked, as well as the quality. When you look at some of the goals recently, and the impact he has in attacking areas, that’s extremely important.
“Troy is another who has had another solid finish to the season, and we’ve still got time to keep going, challenge, and push him to keep improving, which he has been excellent at.”
We’ll be keeping a close eye on the playoffs, where Parrott and his fellow Irishmen will try and lead MK Dons to glory.
