ENGLAND C may have bowed out of this year’s International Challenge Trophy at the semifinal stage – but there’s still been plenty to shout about for Non-League’s Three Lions.
Now you can have your say in who scoops The FA England C Player of the Year at the 2012/13 National Game Awards in association with Budweiser Club Futures.
Luton Town striker Andre Gray grabbed the winner in the 2-1 win after Hyde hotshot Scott Spencer had opened the scoring from the spot.
It was a magnificent team performance with wingers Lindon Meikle and Josh Gillies impressing to help the Lions seal qualification to the latter stages.
Semi-final preparation was hampered by torrential rain in Albania that saw October’s friendly postponed with the players already in their kit.
Despite an excellent showing, with midfielders Kieron Forbes, Sam Wedgbury and last season’s England C player of year Kenny Davis (pictured below) shining, England went down to a late strike.
Budweiser Club Futures is a programme investing £1m into grassroots football. Season two applications will be live on thefa.com from July 2013 .
Players capped by England C this season: Preston Edwards, Jamie Turley, Aswad Thomas, Simon Ainge, Eddie Oshodi, Kieron Forbes, Josh Gillies, James Vincent, Scott Spencer, Lindon Meikle, Andre Gray, Steve Brogan, Kenny Davis, Adam Watkins, Greg Taylor, Sam Wedgbury, Christian Jolley, Ryan Jackson, Josh Wilson.
