VOTE FOR YOUR PLAYER OF THE SEASON 2016/17

29 March 2017

With the 2016/17 reaching it's climax, we are asking for your say on who you think has been the Iron’s best player this season.

The player who receives the most votes will be awarded the Ernie Storey Memorial Trophy, the last award to be presented at our annual awards dinner, held in the Sir Ian Botham Executive Lounge on Sunday, April 30.

David Mirfin took seven of last year's accolades, with Neal Bishop and Paddy Madden the other recipients of awards.

It’s an award that current manager Graham Alexander received in his playing days for the club (1993/94) while goalkeeper coach Paul Musselwhite was also voted the player of the year in 1988/89.

To view a full list of winners from last season, visit: http://www.scunthorpe-united.co.uk/news/article/seven-awards-for-mirfin-3095885.aspx

To vote, simply send an email to james.moody@scunthorpe-united.co.uk with “Player of the Season” as the subject title for your vote to count. Submit your first, second and third choices. 

The winner will be picked on a points system, where your first choice attains three points, your choice will get two points and your third choice will receive one point.

The 12th Man holders will once again have their own award this year and are able to vote for their player of the season at the same time. Simply put 12th Man in the message, along with your chosen three players in the email for the vote to be counted for both categories.

You can also vote in the club shop and ticket office, via a ballot box. Simply fill in one of the slips provided for your vote to count.

Voting closes on Monday, April 24, 2017 at 5pm.
