Following Sunday’s Wembley heroics, Rotherham United Manager Paul Warne declared he’d challenge anyone who disagreed that Ben Wiles was the Man of the Match at Wembley.
Thankfully then – although his comments were made in jest – Millers fans agreed with their manager and voted to crown the midfielder as the PA Entertainments Man of the Match for a scintillating display at the home of football.
The Academy graduate, who famously hails from Rawmarsh capped a scintillating individual display with one of the finest goals scored by the Millers – and anyone else for that matter – at Wembley.
On a day full of stories and heroes following the 4-2 extra-time success over Sutton United, fans crowned Wiles their Man of the Match, with 55.8% of the 2,088 votes cast, ahead of fellow goalscorers Jordi Osei-Tutu, Chiedozie Ogbene and Michael Ihiekwe.
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 Beanie Hat from Terrace Threads.
The PA Entertainments Man of the Match and the lucky winner of the Beanie Hat 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 Saturday, when the Millers welcome Shrewsbury Town to AESSEAL New York Stadium in Sky Bet League One.
