THE GREAT GOAL: NOGAN V BOLTON

11 February 2016

A memorable goal for Brighton & Hove Albion against Bolton Wanderers.


Kurt Nogan
Bolton Wanderers 0-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
(30 January 1993, Division Two, Burnden Park)


The player
Kurt Nogan was a former Luton striker and also used to clean Steve Foster’s boots! He scored on his Hatters debut against Liverpool in 1990, but was released two years later. He arrived at the Goldstone in 1992, hitting 60 goals in 120 matches for the Seagulls, impressing with his speed and eye for goal.

The goal
After facing immense pressure from promotion chasers Bolton, Brighton won a rare throw-in near the corner flag on the right wing. With his back to goal, Nogan chested the ball smartly to elude his marker. Now on the goal line, he knocked the ball past the right-back, before running around the other side to collect it. As he collected it, his touch bamboozled two more defenders to the ball, before sending an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net.

Why this goal mattered
It put Brighton into eighth place with an outside chance of securing a play-off position. It was also one of 20 league goals that Nogan scored in a superb first season at the Goldstone.

And now
Nogan signed for Burnley in February 1995. He went on to play for Preston, putting the side 2-0 up against Arsenal with two goals in the FA Cup, before succumbing 4-2. He also played for Cardiff, before being forced to retire from the professional game in 2001.
