Exiles Player Of The Season

Last updated : 28 April 2003 By Andy Burton
Following a huge response from Exiled Cherries fans, it was with great pleasure that Ralph Beales presented Carl Fletcher with the Exiles Player Of The Season Trophy with a resounding 75% of the vote - by far the biggest margin by the winner for many years.

Many qualities have enabled Carl to win so convincingly including his strength at the back, marshalling the back four, tough tackling without being being booked too many times, and outstanding leadership.

It is with our congratulations that Carl won. He also picked up the Junior Cherries award, and is likely to be a favourite to pick up the Evening Echo's Micky Cave award.

Other players who were voted for were:
Jamie Hayter
Marcus Browning
Wade Elliott
Neil Moss
Stephen Purches
Danny Thomas
