From Jaffa cakes and crisps to a fillet of fish and cell phone data… these are the worst MOTM prizes ever


Zac Williams was absolutely buzzing after playing a man of the match game for Crewe Alexandra and was awarded full time.

The post-match buzz hit hard because he didn’t get the traditional champagne that footballers over 18 would receive, as he’s only 16.

How weird are these rewards?

Instead of the usual bottle of champagne, he was given a packet of ready-made crisps and a box of Jaffa Cakes, following his exploits in the field.

But is this the strangest man of the match award in football? EDGE took a look and it was clear that the answer was a categorical ‘no’.

From cooking grates and planes to mobile data and fish, the list is endless. It is also devilish what happens with a price.
