With the Football League Awards 2016 coming up, the 72 clubs of the Football League have been asked to submit their team's entry for Mitre Goal of the Year. And, as was revealed today, Reading's entry was... *drumroll*... Danny Williams' strike against Blackburn in December. That was the first goal under Brian McDermott in his second spell at the club, and helped the Royals to a 1-0 win at the Madejski Stadium. You can watch it just  below.

The only other goals of significance for Reading fans are one against the Royals, and another scored by an academy graduate. First up is this strike from Brentford's Sergi Canos - also at the Mad Stad.

Former Royal James Henry also finds himself on the shortlist with this effort... (skip to 2m50s).

What happens next is that, from the total of 72 goals submitted, a shortlist of 10 will be created. The goals on that shortlist will be broadcast to the public on Channel Five's Football League Tonight show. From that shortlist, viewers can vote for their favourite - the top five of which shall form the final shortlist (long list of shortlists, anyone?).

You can find the full list of entries here.
