MARK Travers has been voted the Daily Echo/Micky Cave AFC Bournemouth player of the year.

The 22-year-old secured 55 per cent of readers’ online votes, putting him ahead of top scorer Dominic Solanke, who recorded 35 per cent of selections. Midfielder Lewis Cook finished third.

Travers has enjoyed a sublime campaign between the sticks for the Dorset club, who on Tuesday secured a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest to seal promotion.

That was Maynooth-born Travers’s 19th league clean sheet of the season, as he goes in search of the Championship’s Golden Glove award.

Travers’s victory means a hat-trick of goalkeepers have now won the prestigious prize, after Asmir Begovic and Aaron Ramsdale both picked up the trophy in the previous two seasons.

The Daily Echo/Micky Cave trophy is named in honour of the former Cherries midfielder, who died in 1984.

Travers is set to receive the award after Saturday’s home clash with Millwall.
