CHRIS WHELPDALE NOMINATED FOR LEAGUE 2 PLAYER OF THE MONTH AWARD

8 December 2015

Chris Whelpdale has been nominated for the Sky Bet League 2 Player of the Month Award for November. 

The winger is one of four players nominated for the award after a string of fine performances during the month, which saw the 28-year old score four times including a hat-trick against Morecambe.

The nominated players are:

Danny Grainger (Carlisle United) – full back
Grainger adds as much going forward as he does to the defensive line. A real motivator and club captain, he led by example with both goals in the 2-2 draw with Portsmouth, including a delightfully curled injury-time equaliser.

Johnny Mullins (Oxford United) – central defender  
A rock at the heart of a defence which conceded just one goal in four games. Recently assumed the captaincy, a perfect choice because of his consistency, ability to read the game and his knack for coaxing those around him.

Jay Simpson (Leyton Orient) – striker
Proving himself to be invaluable in east London with four of his side’s six goals in the month, taking him to 15 in League Two already. Allied a burst of pace with an ability to find space for clinical finishes against Plymouth and Wimbledon.

Chris Whelpdale (Stevenage) - winger
A stellar month for the powerful winger with four goals to add to his versatile play on both flanks. No ordinary goals, either. Two jinking runs and finishes in a hat-trick against Morecambe followed a 20-yard winner at Bristol Rovers.

ALL WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON FRIDAY DECEMBER 11 2015

The judging panel comprises Sky Sports’ Football League expert Don Goodman; Football League Head of Communications John Nagle; League Managers’ Association Director Olaf Dixon and Sky Bet Football Trading Manager Paul Lowery.
