This Year's Vote

The Bill Fenton Memorial Clubman Trophy is now in it’s 44th consecutive year and voting opens on Tuesday 4th April for this year’s coveted prize.

Fans are asked to select the player who they feel best deserves the award based on the following criteria:

1 – Sportsmanship;
2 - Effort on the field of play;
3 - Ability

The winner of the vote receives the Billy Fenton Memorial Trophy which is in memory of legendary City player Billy Fenton, and the award has been presented through the decades by Billy's widow Margot. 

This year fans have four voting options – to hand in a form collected from either the Bromley or the Wrexham home games; to collect and fill in a form at the Club Shop/Ticket Office; to download a form using the link below and send it into the club; or to vote online by sending your full name and address for validation purposes, as well as your player choice, to slo@yorkcityfootballclub.co.uk 
The deadline for voting is Monday 24th April at 4.30pm
