Cambridge United is delighted to team up with Cambridge BID to give you the chance to vote for your Love Cambridge Player of the Month…
Following a super first month of the season which saw the U’s pick up 10 points from six league games and a Carabao Cup Round One victory against Millwall, the inaugural Love Cambridge Player of the Month shortlist is Harvey Knibbs, Shilow Tracey, Sam Smith and Lloyd Jones.
After scoring two goals which led directly to four points this month - against MK Dons and Charlton Athletic - Knibbs has had a terrific start to the season in attack. This past month Shilow Tracey has enjoyed his best spell in a U’s shirt, terrifying defences all over the country with his quick feet and trademark burst, leading to two assists.
Meanwhile, Sam Smith’s nomination can’t be argued as four goals, including a hat-trick against Burton Albion, has shot the striker up the goalscoring charts. Finally, Lloyd Jones has been an ever-present and dominant presence in defence and is the fourth player to be up for the award.
To vote for your Love Cambridge Player of the Month Award, make your selection in the below Twitter poll. The winning player will be presented with a trophy in an iconic Cambridge location next week.
