Stacey West End of Season Awards 2023/24

It is time for the Stacey West End of Season Awards, which you, the readers of this site, mainly chose.

It’s been an interesting twelve months for Lincoln City fans, one that I think has surpassed expectations. There’s a saying from a Terry Pratchett book, ‘living through interesting times’ is a curse because it usually means change and upheaval. Well, we had that this season, and we’re in really good shape looking to the future, so for once, interesting times mean good fortune.

Oddly, that’s the exact introduction I used last season. It’s funny how each season feels unique, but ultimately, perhaps, many are the same. What will not be the same are the winners of the awards. Ethan Erhahon, your Young Player of the Season in 2023, is no longer eligible. The loan players are also different, and I think there’s more scope for some surprises.

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 also on 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 was gathered by adding each match and dividing by the number of matches we played during the period we collected data. To qualify, players have to have played in at least 30 of our matches this season. By ‘played’, they must have been on the field for 15 minutes or more, so subs ratings only count if they came on before the 75-minute mark.

Young Player of the Year

Same as above, but for players aged 21 or under when the season kicked off, they must have played in 15 of our matches this season. I have lowered this, given how young players often play fewer matches.

Loan Player of the Year

Same as above, but for players we had 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 game with the highest average rating

Best Individual Display

The player with the single highest rating for a solitary game.

At the end of the article is a full breakdown of your ratings, player by player, with goals and appearances from Soccerbase thrown in as well.
