Papa Johns Trophy

Hartlepool United's Ben Killip named Papa Johns Trophy Semi-Final Player of the Round

25 March 2022

Hartlepool United stopper Ben Killip has been named as the Papa Johns Trophy Player of the Round for the Semi-Final.

The Pools bowed out to Rotherham United earlier in the month, as the Millers progressed to the Wembley Final on spot-kicks.

Despite missing out on the showpiece, Hartlepool enjoyed a fantastic run to the Semi-Final, and Killip put in an impressive display between the sticks as the two teams played out a pulsating 2-2 draw over 90 minutes. Penalties were then needed to separate Hartlepool and Rotherham, with the Pools' number one making a save in the shoot-out, which the hosts eventually lost 5-4.

With 41% of the vote, Killip beat off competition from fellow 'keeper, Sutton United's Dean Bouzanis, Wigan Athletic's James McClean and the Millers' two-goal hero, Michael Smith.
