Dom Telford Nominated for Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round

22 September 2017

Rovers striker Dom Telford has been nominated for the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round.

The on-loan frontman netted twice in his first start for the club, initially, he left the Wycombe defence for dust as he tricked his way into the area before calmly slotting the ball home. He then added his second just before half time rising high to nod home a Joe Partington cross.

This week’s conclusion of the opening matchday brings to a close a goal-filled first round of games with 114 goals going in across the 32 fixtures that took place up and down the country.

Last year’s finalists Oxford got off to a winning start with an impressive 6-2 victory at Stevenage and the round featured a series of high-scoring thrillers, including a dramatic 4-3 away win for AFC Wimbledon at The Hive London against Barnet.

The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round shortlist for the first group stage matches is as follows:

Rob Hall – Oxford United
Jacob Hansen – Bradford City
Callum Hudson-Odoi - Chelsea
Brad Inman – Rochdale
Dom Telford - Bristol Rovers

The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round competition gives fans the opportunity to vote for the player they feel shined in the first round of fixtures.

An independent football expert will select the five worthy players that will make up the shortlist each round before supporters have the chance to vote for the final two via

The two players with the most votes will then be considered by a judging panel consisting of representatives from the EFL, before the overall winner is revealed on Monday 2 October.

Every fan who votes will be entered into a prize draw, with one lucky supporter getting the chance to present the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round award to the winning player and win tickets to the final of the competition at Wembley in April.

Fans have until 9am on Tuesday 26th September to register their votes for the inaugural award.
