Accolades continue for Latics striker Will Grigg.

  • Will Grigg beats Millwall’s Lee Gregory to PFA award.
  • Striker scored 28 goals in all competitions and picked up the League One Golden Boot award with 25 league strikes.

Will Grigg narrowly edged out Millwall striker Lee Gregory in the vote for the PFA Fans’ League One Player of the Year award this week, securing another accolade at the end of an incredible campaign for the Northern Ireland international.

After scoring 25 goals in the league, Grigg had already collected League One’s Golden Boot award and he is now able to add the PFA Fans’ League One Player of the Year award to his collection after gaining 160 votes more than Gregory.

Gillingham's Bradley Dack finished third in the poll with 2,414 votes ahead of Shrewsbury midfielder Sullay Kaikai (1,082), Swindon striker Nicky Ajose (840) and Walsall's Romaine Sawyers (665).

The top six were chosen by Sky’s expert panel, which included Sky Sports pundits Ian Holloway, Peter Beagrie and Paul Merson, Mike Riley - general manager of the Professional Game Match Officials, and Malcolm Clarke - chairman of the Football Supporters' Federation.

Well done Will!
