Jack Grimmer wins the first League 2 PFA Fans’ Player of the Month Award of the 2017/18 Season
It may be a bit of a surprise, but it’s certainly a welcome one. Our very own Jack Grimmer has been voted the PFA Bristol Street Motors Player of the Month for League 2 (to give it it’s full title).
Grimmsy Baby took 36.5% of the vote, beating Luton Town’s keeper Marek Stech to the prize (29.1%), with both players leaving the other contenders “trailing in their wake” according to the press release.
If you’re wondering how this was chosen, the voting was carried out online via Snack Media and covered both August and September. The vote was unique in the history of the Awards as it was the first time that the short list was made up entirely of Goalkeepers and Defenders.
The other contenders from the final short list polled as follows:
- Christy Pym (Exeter City) – 9.8%
- Mickey Dementriou (Newport County) – 8.9%
- Adam Collin (Notts County) – 8.6%
- Joe Jacobson (Wycombe Wanderers) – 7.1%
I am bloody delighted for the lad.
