Goalscorer nets local recognition.
Rovers are pleased to announce that striker Chris Brown won the Sheffield Star’s ‘Rovers Player of the Year’ award at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel, Sheffield last night.
Brown, who has nine league goals to his name this term, fought off competition from Paul Keegan and Richie Wellens to scoop the award at the eighth annual ceremony.
“Obviously it’s great to get this award, but we still need to get a result when we go to Leicester on Saturday,” he said.
“We’ve got the experience and know-how to go there and pick something up, so that’s where our focus is at the moment.”
The event, which saw former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty pick up the lifetime achievement award for his spell as Rotherham United boss in the 1960’s, also saw Rovers left back James Husband shortlisted as one of three in the ‘Young Player of the Year’ stakes; with the winner, Chesterfield’s Ollie Banks.
