Charlton Athletic midfielder Ricky Holmes has taken the new PFA Fans’ Player of the Month Award for August and September.

The 30 year old has featured in ten of Charlton Athletic’s eleven League One games so far this season, returning four goals as the club sit in fifth place in the table and he won the vote with a 31.2% share.

Rotherham United’s Kieffer Moore came second with 21.1% and Blackburn Rovers’ Charlie Mulgrew in third with 18.6%.

Also on the shortlist were Wigan Athletic’s Dan Burn, Scunthorpe United’s Matthew Gilks and Peterborough United’s Jack Marriott.

Vital Football announced in October that we would be assisting in giving fans the opportunity to vote in The PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month Awards. Vital Football are part of the Snack Media set up, and Snack Media are the new digital media partner of the Professional Footballers Association of England and Wales for the next three years and they have revamped the PFA’s monthly awards.

Premier League voting will take place on Tuesdays, with the Championship following on Wednesdays, League One on Thursdays and League Two on Fridays and voting will take place between the hours of 10am and 8pm or 11pm on each day and outside of those hours the visible ‘voting widget’ will be offline. The winner of each Award will be announced the following day after their respective league voting closes at 9am.

Over those days, and during the voting hours for each division, fans will automatically see the voting widget appear at the bottom of articles on the network.

The shortlists for each vote (six players) will be drawn up with regular panellists from both the PFA and the Snack Media Group and they will be joined by monthly guest panellists which will include former players, managers, officials, journalists, social media influencers and fans themselves.
