Huddersfield Town Player of the Year 2015/16: Voting due to open

Players looking to follow in the footsteps of last year's winner, Jacob Butterfield

It's almost time to cast your vote for the Hargreaves Memorial Huddersfield Town Player of the Year 2015/16.

We have joined forces with the club to set up a vote, set to run from Monday 18 April to Friday 22 April, so you can decide which player walks away with the prestigious prize.

Last year, Jacob Butterfield claimed the award by the narrowest of margins - there was under 1% difference in the voting between the former midfielder and runner-up Sean Scannell, who was named Players' Player of the Year.

In David Wagner's first season at the helm, there are again a number of worthy candidates for this year's Hargreaves Memorial trophy, named after Town supporters John and Edith Hargreaves.

The rules state that the winner must have made 10 appearances for the first team during 2015/16, so who will you be voting for?

Top scorer Nahki Wells has netted 16 times in all competitions, and is a shoe-in to collect the Golden Boot, but he's also chalked up four assists and his all-round displays have won plaudits from his manager.

After Wells, the player with the most appearances this term is skipper Mark Hudson, Wagner's trusted lieutenant on the field and in the dressing room - with goals against Leeds, Fulham and Charlton to his name, and an assist during an unfamiliar centre forward role against MK Dons.

Jamie Paterson, on a season-long loan from Nottingham Forest, is a popular figure with the fans and his strike against Hull City last weekend took his tally up to seven goals for the season.

In a deeper role, summer signing Dean Whitehead has added some steel to the midfield areas, while Jonathan Hogg has flourished under Wagner's guidance and has been a real miss since his injury in February.

Winner of last year's Goal of the Season award, Joel Lynch continues to do his best work in his own penalty area, and Town's back line has looked at its most formidable with him at at its centre.

'One of our own', Philip Billing has made the breakthrough from the Academy ranks to the first team this term, while Joe Lolley has also blossomed - now one of the most regular names on the team sheet and a reliable contributor from the wide areas.

The other names on the shortlist hoping to get your vote are Jed Steer, Tommy Smith, Jason Davidson, Sean Scannell, Karim Matmour, Ishmael Miller, James Husband, Emyr Huws, Harry Bunn and Kyle Dempsey.

Check out the video above to see some of the key moments from this season's contenders for the Hargreaves Memorial Player of the Year and don't forget to come back on Monday to cast your vote for your favourite.
