Weymouth striker Stuart Beavon has won the FA Cup "Player of the Round" award for the first round proper.

Beavon's seven-minute hat-trick in the Terras' 4-0 win at Eastbourne Borough earned him 40% of the votes cast.

He will join four previous winners - and six from subsequent rounds - in the "Team of the FA Cup" for 2007/08.

The quintet other contenders for the award were Bury's Andy Bishop, Horsham pair Nigel Blake and Lee Carney, and Havant & Waterlooville's Mo Harkin.

Fans can vote for their favourite player in each round on the FA's website.

As well as a VIP ticket to the 2008 FA Cup Final at Wembley on Saturday, 17 May 2008, each of the 11 winners will receive a trophy and 500 worth of football equipment for a local school of his choice all courtesy of E.ON.

The "Team of the FA Cup" so far comprises Jack Pitcher (Gloucester City), Matt Townley (Team Bath), Andy Forbes (Eastleigh), Craig Farrell (York City) and Beavon.
