Help Sam Ashton win Player of the Second Round

FC United’s superb shot-stopper Sam Ashton is one of five players shortlisted for the E.ON Player of the Round for the Second Round of the FA Cup and you can help him win by casting your vote.

With Jake Cottrell already winning a VIP trip for two to The FA Cup Final on 14 May 2011 due to being voted Player of the First Round Proper, let’s send Sam along with him as a thank you for his fantastic performance at Brighton & Hove Albion which included a penalty save in the 96th minute.

You can vote by visiting the FA Cup player of the round vote before midday on Monday 13 December. The player with the highest number of votes will receive a commemorative trophy and two VIP tickets for the big day in May.

Ashton was nominated for the award by The Daily Star’s Sports Editor Howard Wheatcroft for, “A superb last minute penalty save, keeping FC United’s FA Cup dream alive. The non-League club produced a spirited performance, as they played the last 20 minutes with ten men after Scott McManus was shown a red card. The brilliant penalty save rounded off a great performance from Ashton, who was the hero of the day.”
