There is nothing quite like an inspired bit of skill or a big finish to brighten up your week, and here at Shoot! we are always on the look out for the best to bring you.

Today’s feature comes from League Two, specifically from Barnet’s The Hive Stadium, where forward Simeon Akinola scored his first Football League goal in stupendous fashion last weekend.

The 24-year-old, who only joined The Bees from non-league outfit Braintree Town in January, opened his goalscoring account for his new club with a ridiculous overhead effort against Crawley Town on Saturday.

Akinola, who has also played for the likes of Boreham Wood and Harrow Borough, equalised for Barnet shortly before half-time after perfectly executing his acrobatic strike from Jamal Campbell-Ryce’s cross.

Although The Bees could only salvage a 2-2 draw late on at The Hive, Barnet fans will not forget Akinola’s first goal in a hurry!

Will he ever score a better goal for Barnet than his first? Tough ask.
