Ex Oaklands College student and St Albans City Football winger, Sean Shields has been rewarded for his outstanding FA Cup skills at Ashford Town by being nominated for Budweiser Player of the Round.
Sean scored a first-half hat-trick in just 29 minutes in Saints' 6-2 second qualifying round win at Short Lane and was a constant threat to the Middlesex club throughout. It was the first FA Cup hat-trick away from home by a City player for more than 60 years.
St Albans City Manager, David Howell, commented: “Sean deserves the honour. He has come on leaps and bounds and delivering an end product to match his talent.
“If he keeps his feet on the ground and continues to learn his trade properly with us he can go a long way in the game."
Sean is one of five nominees. The winner will be determined by an online poll and St Albans City fans can vote for Sean by following the link below.
Fans have until midday on Tuesday October 2nd to vote.
The player who tops the poll will receive a commemorative Budweiser Player of the Round trophy and he will also be invited to The FA Cup Final at Wembley next May as a guest of The FA and Budweiser.
