Three players have been nominated for the Budweiser Player of the Round award following their performance in The FA Cup First Round Qualifying.
You have until midday on Tuesday 24 September to vote for your favourite.
The person 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.
The selections for the First Round Qualifying are as follows:
Russ Dunkley, AFC Rushden & Diamonds
Dunkley was the Diamonds’ star man as his incredible five-goal haul helped his side register a comfortable 8-0 win over Cockfosters. Uniquely, all five goals were scored with his head.
Anthony Thomas, Hendon
It might seem strange to nominate a player who only came off the bench in the 75th minute, but Thomas did something special in the quarter of an hour he was on the pitch; he scored what is believed to be the fastest hat-trick (just over six minutes) in the history over Hendon Football Club, as the Greens eased to a 7-1 win over Biggleswade United.
Ryan Williams, Scarborough Athletic
Williams was instrumental in Scarborough’s 4-0 victory over Team Northumbria, scoring the second goal and proving a menace on the wing throughout.
