Striker claims JPT goal prize
Patrick Agyemang has won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy round two Ultimate Finish award.
The striker was chosen for his stunning run and finish in Pompey’s 2-1 triumph at Oxford last month.
He comfortably beat off competition from the other nine nominees, receiving 52 per cent of the fans fans’ vote.
Agyemang will receive a trophy and be given automatic entry into the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Ultimate Finish of the Season competition, which will showcase the best goals throughout the campaign.
“It’s a great honour to win the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Ultimate Finish award, particularly as there were some really good goals scored in round two,” said Agyemang.
“The goal gave us an important advantage against Oxford in what was a very close game. It meant we could catch them on the counter-attack as they pushed for an equaliser.
“I was able to skip by a couple of defenders and it was pure instinct to use the outside of my right boot. Luckily for me there was enough power and curve to find the bottom corner.
“I’m always pleased to win any award, but it’s more special when it’s voted for by the fans.
“I hope to score a few more goals as we chase a place at Wembley.”
Ben Wilde, brand and sponsorship manager for Johnstone’s Paint, said: “To secure over 50 per cent of the vote in any competition is brilliant and Patrick is obviously a well-deserved winner.
“This Ultimate Finish competition was filled with spectacular goals and our congratulations go to Patrick on his fantastic strike.
“He has helped Pompey get a sniff of Wembley and is now in with a very good chance in the Ultimate Finish of the Season award.”
