READ | Smith lands PA Entertainments x Terrace Threads Man of the Match as he moves to top of League One scoring charts

1 November 2021

It had to be one of our boyhood Newcastle United fans that landed the PA Entertainments Man of the Match in collaboration with Terrace Threads for the game against Sunderland didn’t it?

In fairness, you could have drawn names out of a hat from Saturday’s emphatic Sky Bet League One win over the Black Cats for a deserved Man of the Match winner – such was the nature of the team performance – but it was Michael Smith who stole the headlines once again.

Netting a goal either side of half time and perhaps enjoying his second in front of the travelling contingent a little too much, Smith once again turned in a near-complete performance alongside an equally impressive Freddie Ladapo in attack.

Goals 11 and 12 also took Smith to the summit of the Sky Bet League One scoring charts.

In perhaps our toughest shortlist nominations yet, Smith was joined in the public vote by fellow Geordie Dan Barlaser, Ben Wiles and Freddie Ladapo but collected 49.1% of the 770 votes cast following the full time whistle.

Background

This poll is supported by our friends at PA Entertainments and Terrace Threads.

PA Entertainments have been long-term supporters of the football club and were hailed for their recent work which involved them lighting up the AESSEAL New York Stadium in the colours of the NHS and more recently, with the image of a poppy for Armistice Day.

Supporters may be aware that we recently welcomed Terrace Threads on-board, who took up the option of sponsoring our newly-produced ‘Goal Gifs’ for the duration of the 2021/22 campaign.

Following discussions between the two parties, they have collaborated to give supporters an added incentive to vote for our Twitter Man of the Match Poll, with fans who cast a vote and retweet our social media poll automatically entered into a prize draw to win a £50 voucher to spend with Terrace Threads.

The PA Entertainments Man of the Match and the lucky winner of the £50 Terrace Threads voucher will be revealed on a Monday morning following a Saturday fixture or midday on the day after a midweek fixture.

The next opportunity for supporters to pick their Man of the Match is on Tuesday night, when the Millers travel to Charlton Athletic in Sky Bet League One.
