ALDERSHOT Town striker Danny Hylton has been voted as the Budweiser Player of the Round for his performance in the Shots' fine 3-2 victory at Fleetwood in the FA Cup second round a fortnight ago.
In-form Hylton netted twice at Highbury Stadium as the Shots booked themselves a third round date at home to Notts County or Rotherham United.
Hylton collected 59% of the nationwide public vote ahead of Lincoln City’s Alan Power, MK Dons duo Stephen Gleeson and Jon Otsemobor and Sheffield United’s Shaun Miller.
He will now receive a commemorative Player of the Round trophy and be invited to this season’s FA Cup Final at Wembley as a guest of competition sponsors Budweiser and The Football Association.
Hylton tweeted on Tuesday morning: "FA Cup player of round 2 Buzzzzzzing!!!! Thanks for every1 that voted! Wembley FA cup final here I come!"
Team-mate Peter Vincenti is still waiting to hear if his 35-yard cracker in the same game will be voted the Budweiser Goal of the Round.
