DESPITE voting having commenced for the Player of the Year Awards I would like to alert fans to a late change of procedure.

The quality of this squad should be reflected in the vote and therefore I believe strongly that fans should be able to vote for any player who has contributed to our success so far this season.

I misunderstood the mechanics of the vote and didn’t realise those players would be the final selection.

It might be tradition to shortlist a number of players, however this season I feel we need to go against that because there are so many players who could justifiably win the award.

I think it is important that our fans should be able to make their own choices and many of them will quite rightly have a number of players in mind. The squad has performed admirably thus far and it is pleasing that so many players can make a strong case for winning this eagerly sought after prize.
