Swindon's Matt Ritchie has won the League Two Player of the Year award.

The 22-year-old winger has been an integral part of his side's blitzing of League Two this term, scoring 10 goals and creating many more.

Ritchie, who saw off competition from Cheltenham's Marlon Pack and Crawley's Tyrone Barnett, who has since joined Peterborough, to win the gong, said: "I am a little surprised. It is pleasing and I am glad I have won it.

"I think we expected to get promoted this season and that does add that little bit of pressure.

"It has been good the way we have gone out and done what we have expected to do and done it convincingly as well."
