After an exciting first month of the season, the nominees for the A-League Men Austraffic Player of the Month award have been revealed.

Check out the nominees below!

Jamie Maclaren

Melbourne City striker Jamie Maclaren has started the season in hot form scoring five goals from his opening four games, including his 10th Melbourne derby goal, making him the all time leading scorer in the fixture. Maclaren’s goals this season have put him just 17 goals behind Besart Berisha’s all time A-League Men record tally of 142 which is sure to be an interesting sub plot as the season unfolds.

Mathew Leckie

Melbourne City and Socceroos star Mathew Leckie has had a strong start to the 2022/23 campaign helping his team remain undefeated across the first month of action. Leckie has played a key role as City have notched three wins from their opening four games, including a sublime assist in their Round 4 draw with Wellington Phoenix.

Joe Lolley

A new face in the A-League Men, english winger Joe Lolley has settled quickly to life in the A-League, scoring two goals in October. Joining after a long and successful spell for Nottingham Forest in the English Championship where Lolley helped secure promotion to the Premier League last season, Lolley has looked right at home for Sydney FC, scoring twice with his sweet left foot and helping Sydney FC to two wins in its first four games.

Calem Nieuwenhof

21-year-old Nieuwenhof has been a revelation for Western Sydney in the opening month of the season putting in a series superb displays and helping the Wanderers remain undefeated. The young midfielder has settled well in the Wanderers midfield after switching from rivals Sydney FC in the off season, starting all four games and quickly cementing himself as a key cog of the Western Sydney engine room.

Craig Goodwin

Adelaide captain Craig Goodwin started the season in vintage form, providing two assists and scoring a superb goal in four games. The goal was Goodwin’s 45th in all competitions for the Reds, making him the club’s all time leading scorer.
