Papa Johns Trophy Player of the Round: Vote now!

11 November 2022

Following the conclusion of the Papa Johns Trophy Group Stages, four standout performers have been nominated for the Player of the Round.

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

The players to choose from are: 

Nathan Butler-Oyedeji (Arsenal U21s)

The 19-year-old midfielder showcased his dazzling footwork, pace and finishing ability, scoring twice at Cambridge and coming within inches of a hat-trick with a run from deep and blistering shot against the bar. His determination to drive forward also saw him start and finish a breakaway goal in the win at Northampton.

Jacob Chapman (Salford City)

Two appearances, two winning penalty shootouts saving two spot-kicks in each for the 22-year-old on loan from Huddersfield. What’s more, the Accrington tie was his Salford debut as he saved brilliantly from opposite number Toby Savin. Chapman repeated his double spot-kick heroics at Rochdale to send Salford through to the next round.

Dennis Politic (Port Vale)

The only hat-trick of the group stage belonged to Politic, who pressed his case for a regular starting berth in Vale’s league side. His first was a reward for shooting from distance. The second and third, scored within 90 seconds of each other, were clinical finishes after dropping into a pocket of space in the area.

Kieran Sadlier (Bolton Wanderers)

Often a substitute in league games, Sadlier is able to play on the right of a front three or as a wing-back. His versatility allied to an ability to find space and his silky-smooth finishing meant he was the only player in the Papa John’s Trophy first round to score in all three group games.

Voting will close on Monday
