Scott Hogan missed out on being named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Year at Sunday’s Football League Awards, with the award going to Chesterfield’s Gary Roberts.
Hogan, Roberts and Sam Winnall of Scunthorpe United had been shortlisted for the prestigious accolade.
Voted for by the division’s Managers, the nomination for Hogan came following what has been an exceptional season so far for the striker, in his first season playing in the Football League.
The nomination in itself is a fantastic recognition for Scott and his efforts this season, and everyone at Rochdale Football Club is very proud of what the 21-year-old has achieved.
Scott commented: “I’d like to congratulate Gary Roberts on winning the award. He has been great for Chesterfield this season and caused us problems in the games we've played against them.
“Once you’re shortlisted for an award like this then of course the icing on the cake would be to win it, but for me personally I was just completely overwhelmed and humbled to receive the nomination. It was also a great experience for me to be at the event.
“It has been a brilliant season so far for myself and for the team and I’ve learnt so much. If you would have told me at the start of the season that I would be up for Player of the Year, then I probably wouldn’t have believed you!"
