It is time for the Stacey West End of Season Awards, mainly chosen by you, the readers of this site.
It’s been a long season, one full of drama, excitement, elation and occasionally, disappointment. One thing is for certain – Lincoln City fans have not been disappointed overall. Losing at Wembley stung, getting denied the chance to face Tranmere in the EFL Trophy final because of a penalty hurt a lot, but on the whole, we have to be happy with our achievements. This was the best season since the early eighties, one which I’m sure will live in the memory for many years, even if we did not take any silverware.
Over the course of the season, you have been rating each player, week by week, giving me the chance to do an awards article based not only on my interpretations but that of a collective of Imps fans everywhere. Without further ado, why not sit back, relax and check out the six awards we’re giving out this season, which are:
Player of the Year
The player with the highest average rating of the season, gathered by adding each match and dividing by the number of matches we have played during the period we collected data. To qualify, players have to have played in at least 30 of our matches this season.
Young Player of the Year
Same as above, but for players aged 21 or under when the season kicked off, and they must have played in 25 of our matches this season.
Loan Player of the Year
Same as above, but for players we had in on loan who played in 70% of the games they were eligible for.
Jack Mulhall xG Award
My favourite award. Check out this article to find out how we’re going to award this one.
Best Team Display
The single game with the highest average rating
Best Individual Display
The player with the single highest rating for a solitary game.
Before we go on, I usually do a full article for the winners in each month, but for May here are the results, to save a bit of time.
Player of the Month for May – Liam Bridcutt
3rd – Conor McGrandles – 7.23
2nd – TJ Eyoma – 7.25
1st – Liam Bridcutt 7.94
Let’s crack on, shall we?
