Player vot­ing on­line

Central Leader - - SPORT -

Football fans will get a chance to vote for who they think is the top tal­ent in the Lotto North­ern Re­gion Football League with a new on­line pub­lic vot­ing sys­tem.

The vot­ing process for the com­pe­ti­tion’s player of the year awards has been opened up to al­low play­ers, coaches, ref­er­ees and fans to name who they think should be recog­nised.

In the first stage the pub­lic is be­ing asked to vote on who they be­lieve has been the best player on each team in a given di­vi­sion.

Stage two of the process will then put those with the high­est votes from each team against each other to find the player of the year each di­vi­sion.

The pub­lic will also be able to vote for the coach of the year.

Auck­land Football chief ex­ec­u­tive David Parker says the new sys­tem is de­signed to put those di­rectly in­volved in the league at the cen­tre of the process which hon­ours its top achiev­ers.

The ref­eree of the year award win­ner is se­lected by the league’s ref­eree ap­point­ments panel.

Stage one of the vot­ing will close on July 25 with stage two com­menc­ing on Au­gust 1.
