Darlington’s Reece Styche has won the club the Marathonbet #NonLeagueChallenge, which carries a £20,000 prize and a friendly with a legends team this summer.
The idea behind the challenge is to scour the country in search of the best non-league goal celebration, with Wealdstone winning the inaugural competition in 2015/16. That allowed the club to make a new signing and ground improvements, and this morning, Darlington have been announced as the 2017/18 winners.
Styche’s celebration won the prize, with his dive into a snow pile coming back in January against Chorley. As well as much-welcomed funds for the club, Darlo will also get to play in a friendly organised by Marathonbet featuring the likes of William Gallas, Chris Waddle, Emile Heskey and Eidur Gudjohnsen.
