Patterson nominated for award

FC United’s 22-year-old striker Rory Patterson has been nominated for Young Player of the Year in the Non-League Paper’s inaugural awards and you can help him win the accolade.

The Irishman, nicknamed Mr Mystery by the fans, has scored an incredible 26 goals in 35 appearances so far this season including an audacious effort from the halfway line against Silsden FC in September.

There have been other notable strikes too, not least his overhead kick from the edge of the box away at Bacup Borough in February. But as well as finding the back of the net with style on a regular basis, most supporters will probably agree that the former Rochdale trainee’s all round play has greatly improved this season.

Rory has made it into a short list of eight of the best young non-league talents in the country, which is obviously an achievement in itself and one the club would like to congratulate him for.

Supporters can help ’the man with no name’ to win by voting here.
