Nathan Redmond Wins England U21 Player Of The Year Award
Monday, 30th Jan 2017 10:12
Nathan Redmond has come in for some criticism from Saints supporters, but at International level he has been acclaimed as the best player of the season. But he had competition from a Saints team mate.
The vote conducted amongst the members of the England Supporters club saw Redmond poll 32% of the vote to knock fellow Saint James Ward Prowse (25%) into second with third place going to Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek (12 %).
This is a good award to win and will perhaps go a little way to convincing some of our supporters that Redmond is a talent, but he like some of his Saints team mates are struggling with the system at present.
Saints also had an interest in the vote for the full squad's player of the year, it was won by former St Mary's favourite Adam Lallana, whilst this will not please some, it does highlight that the Saints youth system has produced some cracking players since it was revamped back in 2000 as shown by the number of our sadly mainly ex players who were at the club pre administration in 2009 who have gone on to International success.

Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.

So Christmas came and went and for many the lasting memory will be of Valeri Belokon breaking a long, self-imposed silence to send we supporters festive greetings.

Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
