Cheltenham Town's Luke Varney receives Nando's sharing platter for winning Player of the Month award

Don't spend it all at once!

Cheltenham Town striker Luke Varney was voted Autovillage Player of the Month for January, bagging himself a Nando's voucher worth £20.

With three goals throughout 2019's opening month, 36-year-old Varney - who joined the club in September - has scored nine league goals for the Robins so far, making him the club's leading goalscorer as things stand.

The veteran front man, who has turned out for the likes of Charlton, Derby, Leeds, Blackburn and Ipswich throughout his career, is the second-highest goalscorer in the top four tiers of English football over the age of 35 - only Brighton's Glenn Murray has notched more this term.

Varney's opening goal in January came against Yeovil Town on New Year's day, he then followed this with a strike against Tranmere Rovers before burying a stunning overhead kick against Macclesfield Town in the Robins' comeback against the Silkmen at the end of the month.

As a reward for his efforts, Varney has received a Nando's Cheltenham sharing platter voucher. We don't really know why this is so amusing, but there's just something extremely funny about a professional footballer receiving such a trivial prize for becoming the club's Player of the Month.

Champagne's overrated anyway, Luke, and you are an athlete after all..
