Voting is now open for the Hargreaves Memorial Huddersfield Town2016/17 Player of the Year!

The Club has joined forces with the Huddersfield Examiner to set up a vote, which is open now and will run until 5pm on Friday 21 April 2017, so you can decide which player is the most deserving this season.

Bermudian striker Nahki Wells is the current holder, gaining over 51% of the votes from fans at the conclusion of the 2015/16 campaign.

In David Wagner's first full 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 2016/17, so who will you be voting for?

On-loan Manchester City midfielder Aaron Mooy has been a revelation during his season-long loan and, after recently scooping a place in the 2016/17 EFL Team of the Season could be seen as the favourite for Town's accolade.

The Aussie will be hard-pressed by full-back Tommy Smith though, who also featured in the Sky Bet Championship Team of the Season as his meteoric rise under Wagner's tutelage continues.

Then there is Town's top scorer Elias Kachunga to consider – bagging 13 goals so far this campaign after making his season-long loan switch from FC Ingolstadt permanent last month.

Kachunga's fellow German compatriots Christopher Schindler, Michael Hefele and Chris Löwe have also hit the ground running since joining the Club over the summer and cannot be discounted.

Last year forward Nahki Wells took home the 2015/16 Hargreaves Memorial Huddersfield Town Player of the Year award and he will also be hoping to retain the title.

Although not a headline-grabber like Wells and the rest of his team-mates, Jonathan Hogg is integral to Town’s success and the 28-year-old is regularly one of the first names in the starting line-up.

And that's not even mentioning Chelsea FC loanees Izzy Brown and Kasey Palmer or on-loan Liverpool FC goalkeeper Danny Ward – all with a number of fine displays over the past nine months.

But it is up to YOU to decide on the overall winner with the Examiner joining forces with Huddersfield Town to let you make the selection for the season's best player.

Other names on the shortlist apart from the ones already mentioned are Philip Billing, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Mark Hudson, Jack Payne, Rajiv van La Parra and Dean Whitehead.
