Carlisle United's Jamie Devitt has been voted League Two player of the month by fans.

The midfielder earned 31 per cent of the vote in the PFA Bristol Street Motors monthly award for January.

Devitt, a key part of the Blues' promotion push, beat Lincoln's Lee Frecklington into second place with 28 per cent.

"it was clear that Devitt’s January performances – in which he scored twice - has resonated with football fans up and down the country," a statement from the award organisers said.

Devitt, 28, scored against Morecambe and Cheltenham last month whilst contributing other influential displays for the Cumbrians.

It is the second such award in the space of a year for the creative midfielder, who also won the prize for February 2018.

Others in the running this time were Exeter's Dara O'Shea (18 per cent), Bury's Nicky Maynard (10 per cent), Exeter's Christy Pym (nine per cent) and Forest Green's Reece Brown (six per cent).

The vote was run by fan engagement experts Snack Media.

Liz Cope, chief marketing officer for Bristol Street Motors said: “Supporting the PFA Bristol Street Motors Fans’ Player of the Month Award is a privilege.

"The accolade highlights the high calibre of talent currently demonstrated by the players, while acknowledging achievements throughout the season."

A supporter who voted for Devitt will be picked at random to present the award to the United man.

Earlier today, Blues frontman Hallam Hope was pipped to the Sky Bet League Two player of the month award by Bury's Jay O'Shea.
