Whether you favour a superb solo effort, a terrific team goal or a moment of individual magic - Rovers' 2015-16 'Goal of the Season' award is sure to prove as popular as ever.

The club launched the coveted competition (The Peter White Memorial Trophy) in conjunction with the Lancashire Telegraph 15 years ago, in memory of Rovers reporter Peter White.

We've shortlisted eight great goals and here's your chance to pick your favourite finish...

Craig Conway vs. Leeds United
Elland Road

One of the fastest goals in the club's history, Ben Marshall's cross from the right picked out Craig Conway, who fired Rovers in front with a clinical finish, with just 17 seconds on the clock.

Tony Watt vs. Oxford United
Kassam Stadium

New signing Tony Watt capped a dream debut with a superb solo goal, as the Scot secured possession before breaking forward and firing a sweetly-struck shot into the bottom corner of the net.

Ben Marshall vs. Oxford United
Kassam Stadium

Set-piece specialist Ben Marshall grabbed his second goal of the game with a fantastic 20-yard free-kick, which he curled over the Oxford wall and beyond the despairing dive of the keeper.

Jordi Gomez vs. Middlesbrough
Riverside Stadium

Jordi Gomez marked his first outing in Rovers colours with a superb debut strike, as the Spanish star fired a lovely left-foot shot into the bottom corner of the Boro goal from just outside the area.

Ben Marshall vs. West Ham United
Ewood Park

An FA Cup upset looked to be on the cards when Ben Marshall collected the ball from a corner, before cutting inside Dimitri Payet and firing Rovers in front with a sweet left-foot strike from 20 yards out.

Jordi Gomez vs. MK Dons
Ewood Park

With the scores level at 2-2 and the game deep into injury, Rovers were awarded a free-kick 30 yards out and up stepped Jordi Gomez, who curled a sensational set-piece into the corner of the net to secure the win.  

Danny Graham vs. Middlesbrough
Ewood Park

Danny Graham capped a man-of-the-match performance with the decisive second goal, as the former Boro forward latched onto Simeon Jackson's fine flick, before coolly stroking the ball past the keeper.

Shane Duffy vs. Brentford
Griffin Park

Super Shane Duffy sent 800 Rovers fans home happy courtesy of a dramatic late winner, as the defender smashed an unstoppable left-foot shot into the top corner from Tony Watt's lay-off. 

To vote for Rovers' 2015-16 Goal of the Season, either comment with your winner on Rovers' YouTube channel, email your favourite to or pick up a voting form from the Roverstore (Ewood) or Oneroverstore (town centre). 

Voting will close on Monday May 2nd. The winner will be announced at the final home game of the season against Reading on Saturday May 7th.
