Brentford midfield player Adam Forshaw has been nominated for the Sky Bet League One Player of the Year award
Brentford midfield player Adam Forshaw is on the shortlist for a prestigious Football League prize.
The Football League have revealed the three players who are in contention to be named the Sky Bet League One Player of the Year at The Football League Awards 2014, which takes place this Sunday, March 16, at The Brewery, London.
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.
Adam Forshaw is on that three-man shortlist.
He is joined by Kevin McDonald, of Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Swindon Town’s Alex Pritchard.
Adam joined Brentford from Everton in the summer of 2012.
The midfield player completed a permanent move to Griffin Park at the end of a successful Youth Loan.
The 22-year-old initially signed for The Bees for one month but that was subsequently extended until the end of the 2011/12 season and the move was made permanent in the summer.
In his first season at Griffin Park Adam played 53 games in all competitions and was rewarded with a new three-year contract that he signed in June 2013.
This season he has played 31 games for The Bees and scored seven times.
The Football League Awards honour achievements, both on and off the pitch, across The League's 72 clubs, rewarding players, clubs and fans in 13 categories, which include the Family Club of the Year, Johnstone’s Paint Community Club of the Year, Capital One Supporter of the Year and the Tokio Marine Unsung Hero award.
On the pitch, the League Football Education Apprentice of the Year will be chosen for each division, as will the Sky Bet Player of the Year, while the Young Player of the Year and the Mitre Goal of the Year will also be chosen.
Supporters will get a front row seat for Sunday’s Awards with live coverage of the ceremony being broadcast to a global online audience on multiple channels.
Fans can watch all the action unfold by heading to FLAwards.com
, The Football League's official YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as the Brentford Fc website and the Club's YouTube channel.
There will also be a variety of live online partners taking the event to fans around the world.
In total, 33 clubs have been nominated so far, with Championship side Derby County leading the way with four nominations, while a further 12 clubs have been nominated twice, including Brentford.
The Bees have also been nominated for the Johnstone’s Paint Community Club of the Year award.
