EFL Golden Glove

Last updated

The EFL Golden Glove, formerly Football League Golden Glove, is an annual association football award, given to the goalkeeper who has kept the most clean sheets in each of the three EFL divisions. Originally, clean sheets in the league (Championship, League One and League Two), EFL Cup, EFL Trophy and FA Cup all counted towards the Golden Glove but, since 2018, only non-playoff league fixtures qualify.

Contents

The award was first given after the 2006–07 season, with sponsorship from Puma. Macron, the official kits and ball supplier of the Football League, later sponsored the award. In the 201011 season no Golden Glove award was given. The 201112 season saw the introduction of a monthly award in addition to an annual award under new sponsors Precision Training. In 2018, the EFL and sponsors Sky Bet announced the return of the award. [1]
