This is a new trophy and is for the best under-21 player who has come through Notts’ academy as a scholar and has played competitively for the first team this season.
A ballot will be on-line from Monday, on the Football Club’s official web-site, and fans can also make a paper ballot vote in the Club Shop. Anyone can vote for their favourite young player who is truly one of our own.
Those eligible are Haydn Hollis, Fabian Spiess, Curtis Thompson, Greg Tempest, and Kyle Dixon.
The award will be presented at a special Young Player of the Season Award Night in the Meadow Lane Sports Bar, on Tuesday, 29th of April.
There are only 150 tickets available for this event which will be on sale in the Club Shop from Easter Monday at £5.00 per head. There will be a free pie & pies supper with a children’s alternative available as well as a vegetarian option.
Our Master of Ceremony for the night will be Les Bradd, Notts all-time top goal scorer. Young players will be present to give autographs and chat to. And both Shaun Derry and Greg Abbott will be running a question and answer session on the Club’s development squad and academy. There will also be a quiz and a raffle with some fabulous prizes to be won.
The evening starts at half past six in the evening with the raffle closing the evening at nine o’clock. Members of the Official Supporters Association will receive a free strip of raffle tickets on the evening and the name of one lucky member attending the event will be drawn to present the winner with his trophy.
