Blackpool striker Jerry Yates has been named the FLW Fans’ League One Player of the Season after earning 47% of the public vote.

The Tangerines won promotion to the Championship via the play-offs in the 2020/21 campaign and Yates was their key man in the final third. 

The striker scored 21 times for the North West club and showed his quality as a creator as well by providing eight assists. 

His influence was clear to see during Blackpool’s play-off run as he added either a goal or an assist in both legs of their semi-final and in the final at Wembley. 

Yates’ impressive form has earned him the League One Player of the Season award after he received 47% of the fan vote. 

The 24-year-old narrowly beat out Lincoln City goalkeeper Alex Palmer, who received 43% of the vote, to the prize, while Sunderland’s Aiden McGeady was third with 4%. 

Hull City midfielder George Honeyman (3%), Peterborough United forward Jonson Clarke-Harris (2%), and Oxford United defender Rob Atkinson (1%) were also nominated.
