PLAYER OF THE SEASON FROM STAGSNET REPORTS
PLAYER OF THE SEASON
by Martin Shaw
From my average player ratings across every league+cup game this season, my player of the season was Joel Byrom (average rating 7.02).
Second and third respectively were Mitch Rose (6.89) and Ben Whiteman (6.85).
Byrom and Whiteman were pivotal in changing the team’s fortunes around from the start of January, and that is reflected in their average ratings.
Note: only ratings for players starting a game are included - ie. sub appearances not included. Minimum 10 games started.
Note that if only the games since the start of January are included, then Danny Rose shoots to the top (with an average of 7.07).
Thanks to Pete Wright for his spreadsheet.
Special mention to Rhys Bennett who ended the season as the first ever present Stags player in a season since goalkeeper Alan Marriott in 2009/2010, and the first ever present outfield player since Alex John-Baptiste in 2006/2007. Bennett was the CHAD Readers player of the season, the winner of the vote for player of the season on mansfieldtown.net, and the players’ player of the season. Krystian Pearce was the SSA player of the season and the Ollerton Stags player of the season. The manager Steve Evans’ player of the season was Ben Whiteman.
