Sam Clucas voted the latest FA Cup Player of the Round

Sam Clucas has picked up the latest FA Cup with Budweiser Player of the Round award.

The Mansfield Town striker collected 35 per cent of the public vote after scoring four times to help the Stags beat St Albans City 8-1 in the First Round Proper.

He netted all of his goals in a 16-minute spell at the end of the game to secure a resounding win.

Clucas topped the poll ahead of Macclesfield’s Connor Jennings, Brackley’s Alastair Worby and Stevenage striker Francois Zoko.

He will now receive a commemorative Player of the Round trophy and will be invited to this season’s Cup Final as a guest of Budweiser and The FA.

Mansfield travel to Oldham in the Second Round on Saturday.

The 23-year-old produced a sterling performance in our First Round tie at St Albans City and netted four times in a devastating 17-minute spell as we cruised to an 8-1 win.

Clucas collected 35% of the public vote to top the poll ahead of Macclesfield Town’s Connor Jennings, Brackley Town star Alastair Worby and Stevenage frontman Francois Zoko.

He will now receive a commemorative ‘Player of the Round’ trophy and will also be invited to this season’s Cup Final as a guest of Budweiser and the FA.

Manager Paul Cox said: "The performance of Sam at St Albans was exceptional. He deserves the award, as well as a day out at Wembley for the Cup Final."

Our side continue their FA Cup with Budweiser campaign with a trip to Oldham Athletic on Saturday.
