Striker nominated for JPT goal award
The battle to find the best goal of this season’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy has been launched – and Patrick Agyemang is among the contenders.
With a spectacular shortlist of 10 strikes made up of the five Ultimate Finish winners from each round and another five selected by a panel of judges, supporters will now have the deciding vote on the overall winner.
Pompey striker Agyemang won the round two prize, following his stunning run and finish in October’s 2-1 victory at Oxford.
He is up against nine other finalists – including Britt Assombalonga and Grant McCann from Johnstone’s Paint Trophy winners Peterborough.
The player with the most votes will claim the coveted Ultimate Finish award, while one lucky fan selected at random from those that selected the victor will win a Sony PlayStation 4 and FIFA 2014 game.
The full list of finalists are:
GOAL A: Joe Bryan (Bristol City)
GOAL B: Jay Emmanuel-Thomas (Bristol City)
GOAL C: PATRICK AGYEMANG (POMPEY)
GOAL D: Nicky Ajose (Swindon Town)
GOAL E: Conor Washington (Newport County)
GOAL F: Antoni Sarcevic (Fleetwood Town)
GOAL G: Conor McLaughlin (Fleetwood Town)
GOAL H: Grant McCann (Peterborough United)
GOAL I: Jimmy Ryan (Chesterfield)
GOAL J: Britt Assombalonga (Peterborough United)
