The 2011/12 Burnden Aces awards continue by allowing you to vote for your Bolton Wanderers Goal of the Season.

Throughout the campaign, our members have been voting for their Goal of the Month. With the season fast becoming a distant memory, the winners of those polls have been compiled and you have your chance to vote for your favourite goal of 2011/12.

Outlined, below, are the goals you have to choose from.

Goal 1 - Gary Cahill v Queens Park Rangers (August):
Bolton's began the season in fine form, beating Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road by four goals to nil.

Gary Cahill opened the scoring on that day with a stunning curling strike from outside the area. The England international would later leave Wanderers, where he would win an FA Cup and UEFA Champions League double with Chelsea.

Goal 2 - Chris Eagles v Aston Villa (September):
After a difficult start to the Premier League campaign, Wanderers claimed an away success in the Carling Cup, winning 2-0 at Aston Villa.

Chris Eagles would score his first goal for the club on that night as he cut in from the left flank and unleashed an unstoppable strike into the bottom corner of Shay Given's goal.

Goal 3 - Chris Eagles v Wigan Athletic (October):
Eagles was back on the scoresheet at the DW Stadium less than a month later, with his first Premier League goal for the Trotters.

Capitalising on a mistake in the Latics defence, Eagles tricked his way into the box, before cutting back on to his right foot and slotting the ball into the bottom corner of Ali Al Habsi's net.

Goal 4 - Fabrice Muamba v Arsenal (October):
Fabrice Muamba doesn't score too many goals for Bolton, but he will have fond memories of scoring at the Emirates Stadium, having played for Arsenal earlier in his career.

After intercepting a poor ball out of the Gunners' backline, Muamba played a one-two with Darren Pratley, before thumping the ball into the roof of the net.

Goal 5 - Chris Eagles v Stoke City (November):
Chris Eagles' third goal in Wanderers colours came in the 5-0 routing of Stoke City at the Reebok Stadium.

On a day to forget for Potters' goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, the Bosnian goalkeeper hit a routine clearance straight into the path of Eagles, who took one touch before rifling the ball home from the left wing.

Goal 6 - Sam Ricketts v Wolverhampton Wanderers (December):
After nine months out of the game with a career threatening Achilles injury, Ricketts announced his return in style as Bolton drew 1-1 with rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers on New Year's Eve.

Ricketts stormed down the left flank, before cutting inside and curling a superb solo effort past the despairing dive of Wayne Hennessey.

Goal 7 - Gretar Steinsson v Liverpool (January):
Just like Muamba, Gretar Steinsson is not a player who is remembered for his goals.

On a cold winter's evening at the Reebok Stadium, the Iceland international found space inside the Liverpool box and he smashed a superb volley beyond Pepe Reina as Wanderers recorded a famous 3-1 win over Kenny Dalglish's side.

Goal 8 - Mark Davies v Wigan Athletic (February):
Wanderers may have lost to their near neighbours, but Mark Davies' strike was certainly one to remember.

As a result of a long punt from Adam Bogdan, the ball struck David Ngog on the back and fell kindly to Davies, who sent a first time strike into the top corner of Ali Al Habsi's goal with his weaker right foot.

Goal 9 - Ivan Klasnic v Queens Park Rangers (March):
Ivan Klasnic finished as leading goalscorer for Bolton this year, but this is his only entry into the end of season vote.

After Ryo Miyaichi had put the Croatia international through on goal, Klasnic kept his composure and slotted the ball past Paddy Kenny from just inside the area.

Goal 10 - Kevin Davies v Sunderland (April):
Kevin Davies had endured a miserable campaign and found himself out of the team until a return to form in late March.

Having attracted the interest of Sunderland last January, the one-time England international put his former suitors to the sword with two goals, including a cool volleyed finish past Craig Gordon after a superb cross from Martin Petrov.

Goal 11 - Kevin Davies v Stoke City (May):
When Kevin Davies scored at the Britannia Stadium on the final day of the season, things were looking good for Bolton's hopes of staying in the Premier League.

It wasn't to be for the Whites, but Davies' cross-cum-shot won the vote in May, as he deceived the attention of Thomas Sorensen at his near post.
