Stephen Crainey capped off an incredible start to his career at Bloomfield Road by being named Player of the Year in his first full campaign (2007-08).
The left-back was acknowledged for his consistent performances in the Championship by his fellow professionals and the Blackpool supporters.
The former Celtic youth product joined the club on a free-transfer from Leeds United in 2007 and quickly became one of the first names on the teamsheet.
His great form has seen him quickly become a fans' favourite for his consistency.
After a couple of injury problems in the 2008-09 season the Scot returned to form under Ian Holloway and started 43 league games in the club's Premier League promotion season.
He has continued to be a reliable and consistent performer and ended last season on 43 league starts and two substitute appearances as Blackpool reached the npower Championship Play-off final.
