The young midfielder became an integral part of Latics’ Sky Bet League One title-winning campaign in 2015-16, showing great energy, range of passing and creativity - along with six goals.

All-but-one of Power’s six strikes came from outside the area and his eye for a spectacular goal was evident as the campaign progressed with his efforts against Oldham Athletic, Chesterfield and Swindon Town all ‘Goal of the Season’ contenders.

Power was runner-up in the club’s Player of the Season and Players’ Player of the Year awards but did win the Community Trust’s Player of the Year accolade to cap off a successful debut campaign.
