Friday 10am deadline to register Andros Townsend votes for PFA award
Time is running out to register your vote to make Andros Townsend the PFA player of the month for April.
The Newcastle winger was shortlisted alongside Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane (plus nine others) for the PFA award.
An ‘expert panel’ (includes Paul Merson, Peter Beagrie and Ian Holloway) produced a shortlist of contenders. Fans then voted for the player they think deserves the award. One voting fan will win the chance to meet and present the award to the PFA Player of the Month.
That list was cut to a top three, with the trio surviving being:
Andros Townsend (Newcastle United)
Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool)
Jan Kirchoff (Sunderland)
Voting remains open only until 10 am today (Friday) and the winner then announced later today) so get voting HERE for Andros Townsend!
The nine who didn’t make the cut were Christian Eriksen (Spurs), David de Gea (Manchester United), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City), Andy Carroll (West Ham), Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), N’Golo Kante (Leicester), Leonardo Ulloa (Leicester), Shane Long (Southampton) and Harry Kane (Tottenham).
If Newcastle United do end up surviving then the January signing of Andros Townsend will have been key in that.
In only 10 starts, the former Spurs winger has scored four goals, three of them in April, plus he also got two assists last month.
Saturday’s stunning free-kick against Crystal Palace the difference between the two sides.
The impressive form has led to many people, including Gary Lineker, talking of Townsend making a late bid for Roy Hodgson’s Euros squad, especially with the likes of Sterling and Walcott failing to impress in recent times.
