Jordan Maguire-Drew has won the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round Award.

Brighton & Hove Albion under-23 forward Jordan Maguire-Drew was named the Checkatrade Player of the Round Award after his exploits with loan club Lincoln City.

Maguire-Drew was voted as the winner of the award by supporters after making the initial shortlist built by an independent football expert.

Just a month past his 20th birthday, Maguire-Drew scored both goals as Lincoln beat Everton Under-21s 2-1, the second a sumptuous free-kick over the wall.

Playing on the right wing, the youngster on loan from Brighton cut inside at will and caused problems for the Toffees' backline all night, drawing the attention of the award’s judging panel.

Maguire-Drew said, “It was a good game for myself personally and for the team. We’ve qualifying for the second round with Accrington coming up and we’re all looking forward to that.

“The Checkatrade Trophy has been massive for me, and you can test against yourself against physical teams. It’s a good test for young players to see where they stand.”

The Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round competition gives fans the opportunity to vote for the player they feel performed best during the second round of fixtures.

Jordan was joined on the shortlist by other standout performers from Round Two of the Checkatrade Trophy which included: Matt Clarke (Portsmouth), Tom Hopper (Scunthorpe United), Toby Sibbick (AFC Wimbledon) and Reece Brown (Forest Green Rovers).
