Two former Apprentices have been nominated for the ‘Budweiser Player of the Round’ trophy after producing eye-catching displays in the FA Cup Second Round Qualifying.

Ex Burnley midfielder Nicky Platt and Tom Winters, a winger who started his career at Oxford United are up for the award.

Platt who was at Turf Moor between 2004-06 scored a hat-trick last weekend to help his present Club, FC United Of Manchester, edge past Salford City in a difficult local derby.

While Winters also hit a treble in a 4-0 home win for Brackley Town over Daventry Town.

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.
