He will join the eight winners from the previous rounds and two players from subsequent rounds in the "Team of the FA Cup" for 2007/08.

The other contenders for the award were Cardiff's Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Portsmouth keeper David James and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney.

Fans can vote for their favourite player 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, 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), Stuart Beavon (Weymouth), Craig Mackail-Smith (Peterborough), Michael Mifsud (Coventry), Alfie Potter (Havant & Waterlooville, on loan from Peterborough) and Steele.
