Nominations for the 2023 LFE Apprentice of the Season Award are now being accepted by The EFL.
Nominations will be considered on a divisional basis, with one winner per division, receiving national recognition at the 2023 EFL Awards. (Please note that nominations are limited to one player per club). The EFL Awards evening will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on Sunday 23rd April 2023.
Players registered as a first-year or second-year scholar, or as a first-year professional (if he started on an Apprenticeship contract and then converted at 17 to a pro contract) are eligible for this award.
In judging the award, the record of the player in all competitions since he became an apprentice will be taken into account, alongside his education attainment, disciplinary record and any other activities of note or outstanding achievements.
