Vokes Is Player Of The Month

Goal burst nets striker Sam nets final award

7 June 2017

Sam Vokes is the Clarets’ Dafabet Player of the Month for May.

Vokes topped a poll of fans’ votes to take the final award of the season, ahead of short-listed team-mates Jeff Hendrick, Ashley Westwood and James Tarkowski.

The striker enjoyed a superb run-in to the Premier League season as he scored four times in the final three games of the campaign in May.

Two of those goals came in a 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion which secured the Clarets’ Premier League status as Vokes went on to finish as Burnley’s leading scorer with 12 goals for the campaign.

The Wales international is currently on international duty and could win his 50th cap for his country in a vital World Cup qualifier away to Serbia on Sunday.
