Adam Leads Man Of The Match Awards

Adam Leads Man Of The Match Awards

After every game here on Vital Blackpool, we ask our members to vote for who was their man of the match.

Usually Luke Holden writes us a nice little report every so often on who's top of the tree in terms of man of the match games, but unfortunately this season he decided to be a lazy git and didn't do it.

So here, in brief, is a recap of the man of the match awards from last season, as decided by members of this website:

Perhaps unsurprisingly given that he cleaned up at the end of season awards, Charlie Adam was awarded man of the match the most times out of any Blackpool player by our members last season, receiving the accolade a total of nine times.

Coming in second, was Brett Ormerod on seven - just two behind Adam. A truly remarkable season for the frontman.

In third, and a smack in the face to those who said that we didn't need a striker in the January transfer window, was DJ Campbell with a remarkable (considering he was with us for less than half the season) five awards.

Next up was Matt Gilks on four. He'll disagree, but without a doubt he was our most improved player during the course of the season.

We then have a whole host of players on two awards: Gary Taylor-Fletcher, Ian Evatt, Neal Eardley, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, Ben Burgess, Keith Southern, Hameur Bouazza, Alex Baptiste, Barry Bannan, Stephen Dobbie and Jason Euell.

And finally, several players on one award: Daniel Nardiello, Ishmel, David Vaughan, Billy Clarke, Paul Rachubka and Seamus Coleman.

Whilst Adam may have topped this table, the wide range of winners show just what a team effort it was from the lads over the course of the season.

What is surprising however is the likes of Ben Burgess and Jason Euell collecting more awards than David Vaughan. Perhaps the wee Welshman was a victim of his own consistency? Nevertheless, I fully expect him to pick up a raft of awards during the next season as the Seasiders go toe to toe with the Premier League.

Congratulations Charlie!
