Jake Cottrell wins FA Cup Player of the Round

FC United’s Jake Cottrell has been voted the E.ON Player of the First Round Proper with a massive 45 per cent of the vote, after his stunning 25-yard screamer helped the Reds to a 3-2 victory over Rochdale at Spotland.

Cottrell will receive a commemorative trophy and two VIP tickets to this season’s FA Cup Final which will take place at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 14 May. He said: “It’s a real honour and I’d like to say thank you to everyone who voted for me. Hopefully, we’ll be able to produce more of the same at Brighton on Saturday.”

Cottrell raced away with the public ballot receiving 20 per cent more of the vote than the other nominees with Dover Athletic’s Adam Birchall coming second on 24 per cent and Bournemouth’s Josh McQuoid third with 21 per cent. The other players on the shortlist were Swindon Supermarine’s Mark Scott and Carlisle United’s Gary Madine.
