Joe Garner Nominated For League One Player Of The Year

16 April 2015

Preston North End striker Joe Garner has been nominated for Sky Bet League One’s Player of the Year award for 2014/15.

The Football League have announced the three-man shortlist for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Year award, with the winner to be announced on Sunday at the 10th annual Football League Awards.

The Sky Bet Player of the Year awards have been voted for by managers of the clubs in each division.

Each manager was asked to list their top five players from this season in order, with the scores added up to get a shortlist and an overall winner.

The nominees for this year's award, as voted for by Sky Bet League One managers, are Dele Alli (Milton Keynes Dons), Luke Freeman (Bristol City) and Joe Garner (Preston North End).

In winning the award, Garner would join strike partner Jermaine Beckford who has won this accolade on two separate occasions while at Leeds United.

Garner is also nominated for the Mitre Goal of the Year award alongside Rohan Ince (Brighton), Yann Kermorgant (Bournemouth), Andy Mangan (Shrewsbury Town) and Craig Westcarr (Portsmouth).

The Football League Awards celebrates on and off pitch excellence across the League's 72 clubs, rewarding players, clubs and fans.
