The Vital Forest Player Of The Year Is....

The Vital Forest Player Of The Year Is....

Congratulations to Julian Bennett for being voted the Vital Forest Player of the Year for the 2007/8 season.

Jules has probably been the most improved player in a Reds shirt this campaign and is a deserved winner. His marauding runs down the wing and his uncompromising tackles, along with his never say die attitude has made him a favourite with the fans.

It's a credit to the player that he was widely tipped for a season on the bench, after the arrival of Matty Lockwood from Orient in the summer. But he hasn't allowed the highly thought of defender a look in and when given the chance at the start of the season because of an injury to Lockwood, Bennett seized it. This caps off a great season for our local hero, who earlier this week was named in the PFA's Team of the Year.

He's won this accolade by some distance, polling 31% of the vote, with Sammy Clingan coming 2nd with 21%. Third place went to Wes Morgan with 12%. To view the poll results in full, see below.

He must have improved a lot this season. I am sure he used to get abuse from a lot of you guys last season. Or was that just all the team?
