Last Chance To Vote For MBNA North West Football Awards

12 October 2015

Voting for the North West Football Awards closes this Friday, 16th October, so it's you last chance to vote for PNE pair Paul Huntington and Daniel Johnson.

Huntington and Johnson are in the running for League One Player of the Year and Rising Star awards respectively, at the upcoming MBNA North-West Football Awards.

Central defender Huntington capped off a fantastic season by adding the club’s Player of the Year award to his Preston Supporters Group gong – and now he has the chance to add the League One Player of the Year Award to that collection. 

Hunts was a rock at the heart of the PNE defence after returning to the league side at Gillingham in October – marking his comeback with a goal that night. 

And an outstanding personal season ended for Huntington with the highest of highs, a goal at Wembley as North End clinched promotion to the Championship against Swindon Town. 

That was Huntington’s ninth goal of the campaign – an incredible tally for a centre half. 

By winning the North-West award, the PNE No.23 would be following in the footsteps of teammate Joe Garner who claimed the accolade in 2014. 

In the ‘Rising Star’ category, North End’s January acquisition Daniel Johnson is in the running. 

The former Villa man, signed by Simon Grayson for £50,000, made his North End debut in a 2-1 defeat away at Crawley Town on the final day of January – a defeat which was to be the Lilywhites’ last in Sky Bet League One action for three months; Johnson’s arrival playing a big part in that as he contributed eight goals. 

And with a promotion medal now under his belt, the Jamaican has already made an impact in the Championship, and is currently the Club's leading goalscorer with five goals in all competitions so far this season. 

Voting for the Player of the Year and Rising Star categories is open until Friday, 16th October. Fans can cast their votes at
