Charlton Athletic fans can play their part in young defender winning EFL Trophy award


Young Charlton defender Toby Stevenson has made the shortlist for the Checkatrade Trophy Player of the Round.

The 18-year-old left-back scored a hat-trick on his Addicks debut as they romped to an 8-0 win at Stevenage in the group stage of the competition.

Ade Azeez, who used to be on Charlton’s books as a youngster as well as a stint with AFC Wimbledon, also made the shortlist of six players. Ex-Millwall midfielder Calum Butcher, Aaron Connolly (Brighton U23s), Luke Matheson (Rochdale) and Dara O’Shea (Rochdale) are the other contenders.

The two players with the most votes from fans will then be separated by a judging panel from the EFL.

The deadline for votes is Monday November 26. You can vote here
