Toby Sibbick nominated for Trophy award

Double from young Dons defender earns selection for shortlist

3 November 2017

AFC Wimbledon defender Toby Sibbick’s display in the Checkatrade Trophy match against Tottenham Under-21s has earned recognition.

The 18-year-old academy product struck twice in that match and Toby made the shortlist for the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round.

Toby joins Matt Clarke (Portsmouth), Tom Hopper (Scunthorpe United), Jordan Maguire-Drew (Lincoln City), and Reece Brown (Forest Green Rovers) in the second round of fixtures shortlist.

Following the completion of the second round of fixtures in the group stages of the Checkatrade Trophy, the shortlist for the Player of the Round competition has been narrowed down to five. You can vote for Toby by visiting EFL.com/playeroftheround.

If Toby takes home the trophy, you could have the honour of presenting the award and winning tickets to the Checkatrade Trophy Final.

The judging panel nominated Toby with the following reference: “Toby showed his character by overcoming a difficult night defensively against Tottenham’s Under 21s to score two decisive goals in Wimbledon’s thrilling 4-3 win, including a powerfully struck shot into the bottom far corner.”
