SHEFFIELD United’s Ched Evans has been shortlisted for the prestigious npower League One Player of the Year Award at the Football League Awards 2012.

Evans will be up against two other League One players for the Award; Jordan Rhodes of Huddersfield Town and Johnnie Jackson of Charlton Athletic.

Following a £3 million move from Manchester City in 2009, the Welsh international has become an integral player at Bramall Lane. The striker has hit a rich vein of form this season, and his prolific scoring has helped the Blades in their push for promotion back to the Championship.

The shortlist was produced after managers from every League One club were asked to submit their top five players for the Award, excluding players from their own clubs.

This year’s Football League Awards sees a total of 17 awards with the winners being announced at the gala ceremony at The Brewery, London on Sunday 11th March 2012.
