Following the completion of the opening round of fixtures in the Checkatrade Trophy, the shortlist for the first Player of the Round competition has been revealed with Rob Hall making the final five.
You can vote for The Us man here EFL.com/playeroftheround and if he takes home the trophy, you could have the honour of presenting the award to him and winning tickets to the Checkatrade Trophy final.*
Oxford’s 6-2 win at Stevenage included a virtuoso performance from Hall, who played a part in two goals and scored two superb individual efforts – the first racing clear to stroke the ball home, the second a 25-yard first-time shot into the top corner.
The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round shortlist for the first group stage matches is as follows:
• Rob Hall – Oxford United
• Jacob Hansen – Bradford City
• Callum Hudson-Odoi - Chelsea
• Brad Inman – Rochdale
• Dominic Telford - Bristol Rovers
The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round competition gives fans the opportunity to vote for the player they feel shined in the first round of fixtures.
An independent football expert will select the five worthy players that will make up the shortlist each round, before supporters have the chance to vote for the final two via EFL.com. The two players with the most votes will then be considered by a judging panel consisting of representatives from the EFL, before the overall winner is revealed on Monday 2 October.
Every fan who votes will be entered into a prize draw, with one lucky supporter getting the chance to present the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round award to the winning player and win tickets to the final of the competition at Wembley in April.
Fans have until 9am on Tuesday 26th September to register their votes for the inaugural award. To vote for the player you feel deserves to be the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round, please visit EFL.com/playeroftheround.
