Rotherham United attacker Kieran Sadlier helped himself to a wonderstrike of a goal in the Papa John’s Trophy meeting with Crewe Alexandra and coupled it with an excellent performance, to land himself the PA Entertainments UK Man of the Match award.
The fleet-footed midfielder starred for the Millers with a series of clever passes and runs but it was his long-range beauty that really caught the eye in the midweek clash at the Mornflake Stadium.
Sadlier has been on-song for Paul Warne’s men when called upon in the 2021/22 Papa John’s Trophy competition adding to his hat-trick against Manchester City’s U21s with a goal last night.
Clearly enjoying his role in the three in the middle of the park – having been introduced there as a substitute in the recent league win over Bolton Wanderers – Sadlier expressed his creative talent and was a key figure in a number of the Millers’ most promising attacks.
He lands the PA Entertainments UK Man of the Match award by a landslide majority of 70.8% of the 990 votes cast, seeing off competition from Rarmani Edmonds-Green, Wes Harding and Hakeem Odoffin who were also nominated.
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 afternoon when the Millers make the trip to the capital to take on Queens Park Rangers in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round.
