Gilks Scoops Double Award

4 May 2014

Goalkeeper Receives The Accolades

Matt Gilks has won the John Schofield Memorial Trophy voted by Blackpool supporters for the 2013/14 season.

The goalkeeper has played every minute of The Seasiders’ season and his impressive penalty save at Wigan Athletic last weekend helped secure their Championship status for another campaign.

His spot-kick saves against Watford and Millwall proved just as vital across the season.

The stopper was also named Players’ Player of the Season, voted by his Blackpool colleagues.

Meanwhile the Chris Muir Memorial Trophy, given to a high-achieving youngster, was won by Harrison McGahey.

The 18-year-old defender helped the youth team win the North West Youth Alliance, before stepping up to first team duty.

McGahey played the final four games of the season and was impressive, especially against high-flying Wigan, where he played his part in keeping a clean sheet.

Away from football, Spanish midfielder Angel Martinez has been named Community Player of the Year for his work in the community. 

Finally, Stephen Dobbie won the Goal of the Season award for his strike at Brighton & Hove Albion on Easter Monday.
