The defender has made the three-man shortlist following a public vote

17 October 2017

Rovers defender Derrick Williams is among three contenders for the Northwest Championship Player of the Year award for 2016-17.

The 24-year-old was nominated in September and, following a public vote, has been shortlisted for the high-profile accolade.

Williams faces tough competition from Ben Pearson of Preston and Wigan's Dan Burn, with the winner being announced at the Northwest Football Awards evening on Monday November 13th, hosted by the BBC's Dan Walker.

Laura Wolfe, managing director of Wolfesport and the Northwest Football Awards said:  “It’s been another very strong year in the North West footballing world, from non-league right the way through to some of the biggest and most famous clubs on the planet.

“We are really proud of the clubs, people and organisations in our region that are truly leading the way and setting an example for the rest of the UK, across both the men’s and women’s game.

“The Northwest Football Awards turns 10 this year and has grown in popularity and influence year-on-year, due to its inclusive approach to the game in the region – and we are delighted to celebrate this milestone year for the awards, too.”

Well done, Derrick!
