Callum Harriott’s Colchester United goal was good, but not that good!
Callum Harriott may have scored an absolute pearler against Gillingham, to seal a 2-1 win for Colchester United last Saturday, but he insisted that it was NOT the best goal of his career.
Young winger Harriott half-volleyed home in glorious fashion, on 29 minutes, giving Gills keeper Stuart Nelson no time to react with a clinical strike.
But Harriott, on loan from Charlton, admitted that Saturday’s thunderbolt would only just squeeze into his top three of goals scored.
“I have scored a better goal than that,” revealed Harriott.
“That one there was a good one, and it was a winner, but I’ve scored better.

“I scored a goal at Sheffield Wednesday away, in an FA Cup game (2-1 win for Charlton on February 24, 2014), that I rate as a better one.
“And also the goal that got me a hat-trick,” added Harriott, with reference to his second-half hat-trick in an Addicks’ 3-0 win at Blackpool on the final day of the 2013-14 season.

Harriott, 21, has provided seven goal-assists in his first five outings for the U’s, a very impressive record.
He will be looking for more assists, and perhaps another goal, at Swindon Town this Saturday.
