The results are in for the Player of the Season and the Positional Awards for 2017/2018. We’ve seen the positional winners but who was the Peterborough United Player of the Season?

There were only 26 different players to pull on a Posh shirt this season, thirteen less than last season! Eighteen of those players qualified for the Player of the Season poll having played in a minimum of 25% of the 58 matches we were involved in which is actually one more than last season.

Just like the results from last season, a loanee goalkeeper won that particular positional award again, this time it was Reading’s Jonathan Bond.

The defender, midfielder and forward winning votes went to Steven Taylor, Marcus Maddison and Jack Marriott respectively. Sadly, all those winners could be playing for different teams next season after Bond returned to his parent club, Taylor and Maddison are on the transfer list and Marriott is expected to be sold.

Did one of these winners also win the Player of the Season or was there a curve ball thrown in to the voting?

Of the eighteen players up for nomination, just four players picked up votes with two of those players not being their positional winner!

The two “positional” winners that failed to pick up any of the votes were Jonathan Bond and the 2015/16 winner Marcus Maddison!

Three out of the four players to pick up votes all received 6.67% of the votes meaning the winner received 80%!

Those three players were:

RYAN TAFAZOLLI

STEVEN TAYLOR

DANNY LLOYD

The winner of this seasons Vital Posh Player of the Season though was:

JACK MARRIOTT

2011/2012 – Craig Alcock
2012/2013 – Bobby Olejnik
2013/2014 – Britt Assombalonga
2014/2015 – Michael Bostwick
2015/2016 – Marcus Maddison
2016/2017 – Ryan Tafazolli
