After a man of the match display, Corey Whelan has been nominated for Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round for the quarter-final stage.

On his second start for the club, the 20-year-old right-back gave an accomplished performance in defence, also scoring his first senior goal with a brilliant left-footed strike in the 3-2 win over Fleetwood Town.

You can vote for Town’s defender at EFL.com/playeroftheround and if he takes home the trophy, you could have the honour of presenting the award and winning tickets to the Checkatrade Trophy Final*.

The conclusion of the last eight saw Lincoln City, Shrewsbury Town, Chelsea Under-21s and the Glovers secure their place in the semi-finals of the competition.

The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round shortlist for the quarter-finals matches is as follows: 

  • Corey Whelan (Yeovil Town)
  • Jon Nolan (Shrewsbury Town)
  • Harry Anderson (Lincoln City)
  • Danny Rowe (Lincoln City)
  • Harvey St Clair (Chelsea)

The two players with the most votes will be considered by a judging panel consisting of representatives from the EFL, before the overall winner is revealed.

*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 Monday, February 12th to register their votes for the award. To vote for the player you feel deserves to be the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round, please visit EFL.com/playeroftheround.
