Fulham’s Moussa Dembele headlines a list of west London nominees elected for the London Football Awards.
The Whites youngster has scored nine goals this season, striking up a deadly partnership with Ross McCormack in the process, and has been nominated for both Football League Player of the Year and London Young Player of the Year.
His Fulham strike-partner McCormack has also been nominated for the Football League Player of the Year award.
The Cottagers duo will spark a mini-west London competition with Brentford’s creative midfielder Alan Judge and Queens Park Rangers’ Matt Phillips also competing for the Football League Player of the Year award.
Brentford have also been listed for the Community Project of the Year award for their Deaf Sports Plus Project, but will face competition from Arsenal and West Ham for the accolade.
