MELBOURNE: Thursday, March 30, 2017

Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) is pleased to announce the nominees for PFA A-League Player of the Month for March.

Dominated by table topping Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory, the five player shortlist will be voted on by the PFA’s A-League based members.

Proudly supported by PFA Major Partner LUCRF Super, Travellers Choice and Winning Edge Presentations, the PFA A-League Player of the Month Nominees for March are:

>> Milos Ninkovic, Sydney FC;
>> Alex Wilkinson, Sydney FC;
>> James Troisi, Melbourne Victory;
>> Diego Castro, Perth Glory; and
>> Brendan Santalab, Western Sydney Wanderers.

With Castro, Ninkovic and Troisi having already been crowned winners of the award this season, the trio are vying to join Marco Rojas as having twice been named PFA A-League Player of the Month over the course of the 2016/17 season.

Having been on target six times collectively during March, PFA Executive Nigel Boogaard said all five nominees were worthy of recognition.

“On the pitch this season there has been some outstanding individual and team performances,” said Boogaard. “The five nominees have excelled over the course of the season and March was no exception, and anyone of them is worthy of being named PFA A-League Player of the Month.”
