New Norwich City signing Kieran Dowell has won Wigan Athletic’s Goal of the Season award for his hat-trick goal in the 8-0 demolition of Hull City last month.
Dowell spent the second half of last season on loan with the Latics - who were relegated to League One after they fell into administration.
The attacking midfielder put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal with the Canaries last week - signing on a permanent deal and ending an 15-year association with Everton.
Dowell’s effort received 47pc of the overall vote, with Kieffer Moore’s back-heel volley in Wigan’s 3-0 win away at Reading earning 17pc, whilst Kal Naismith’s second goal in the 3-0 win against Stoke City earned 15pc of the votes.
He was nominated for Championship Player of the Month for July, only to be beaten by Brentford’s Said Benrahma.

In a message to supporters posted on the Latic’s social media channels, City’s new boy said: “I’d like to say a big thank you to all of the supporters who voted for me goal. It’s really nice to be recognised by you ahead of some other great goals.
