Papa Johns Trophy

Vote for your Papa Johns Trophy Player of the Round

3 December 2022

Following the conclusion of the Papa Johns Trophy first knockout round, four standout performers have been nominated for the Player of the Round.

Watch the video below and cast your vote via the Twitter poll. 

Nathan Bishop (Manchester United U21s)

United’s saviour in both normal time and the penalty shootout at Molineux. He tipped an early Nathan Fraser shot brilliantly against the post and denied the same player again with a flying stop midway through the first half. Bishop then repeated his heroics in the shootout, saving from Harry Birtwistle and Chem Campbell.

Ryan Broom (Cheltenham Town)

Broom’s performance bestrode this tie as Cheltenham knocked out their Gloucestershire rivals. A driving force in midfield throughout, he struck the post with a sublime shot that rolled back along the goal-line. He then equalised with the first headed goal of his career before sealing his side’s passage with the clinching penalty.

Malik Mothersille (Chelsea U21s)

Mothersille, who turned 19 just three weeks earlier was the only player to score two goals in Round Two. Playing up front as a lone striker, he showed strength, trickery and guile to put Chelsea U21s ahead in the tie while his second goal was a rising drive full of power and precision at the end of glorious team move.

Arthur Read (Stevenage)

Stevenage’s topsy-turvy victory over Arsenal U21s owed everything to Read’s left foot. His dangerous corner caused mayhem in the area for David Amoo’s equaliser before he drove a pinpoint free-kick onto the head of Dan Sweeney to make it 2-1. The winner was all his own work, a fierce shot from 25 yards into the bottom corner.

Voting will close on Monday.
