Just a brief note to say congratulations to Robbie Keane and Jamie O’Hara, who have received ‘Player of the Year’ awards for Celtic and Portsmouth respectively.
Special mention, though, to Steven Caulker, our 18 year old centre back. In his first full season of league football, he has picked up several awards at Yeovil Town, with Player of the Year amongst them:
CAULKER’S CUP CABINET CREAKS
Yeovil Town’s on-loan central defender Steven Caulker completed a near-clean sweep of the “Player of the Year” awards this afternoon.
The trophies were handed out after the game in front of more than a thousand fans who had stayed behind to acclaim the players after the home campaign finished today with a 3-0 victory over Oldham Athletic.
Steven, 18, scooped the top awards from the Green & Whites Supporters Club, the Cary Glovers, the Away Travel Club and also grabbed the Bobby Hamilton Young Player award. It marks an impressive haul for the defender who turned eighteen just after Christmas.
Craig Alcock prevented his defensive colleague from helping himself to the lot when both he and keeper Alex McCarthy pipped the Spurs loanee in the Western Gazette Merit Marks category while Terrell Forbes finished second to Caulker in the Away Travel Club award.
The Away Travel Club also awarded a special recognition award to former player Darren Way who retired from the playing side earlier this season and is now an invaluable member of the coaching staff.
The Andy Stone Memorial Trophy, given to the top scorer each season, went to Dean Bowditch for his ten goals making him the only non-defender to receive an award.
Log in later tonight to see the exclusive pictures from this afternoon’s presentation.
