Midfielder Callum Guy swept the boards when it came to receiving the end-of-season accolades after full-time on Saturday afternoon when he scooped the Supporters’ Player of the Season, London Branch Player of the Season, News & Star Readers’ Player of the Season and the much-coveted Players’ Player of the Season awards.
Having just made appearance number 50 for the club, the popular set-piece specialist found himself weighed down with trophies as he was lined up to be snapped with each of his prizes.
Speaking about his haul, he said: “It’s really nice, especially when you’re getting votes off the fans and the players.
“It’s nice to get the recognition for the hard work I’ve put in all season and to get four awards like this is really pleasing.
“Getting the award from the supporters is the main thing because we want to make the fans proud. We represent them, as the gaffer always says, so it’s nice to put on the shirt and put in good performances.
“The vote from the players means just as much because it shows the rest of the lads appreciate the work you put in. To get voted by them is a really nice feeling as well.”
And with more on what it means for so many different fan groups to have chosen him as their star man, he told us: “It’s really pleasing. Their support of this club is outstanding, everyone tuning in week-in, week-out, paying their money, so it’s nice for them to recognise the performances that I try to put in for every game to show the hard work on the training ground has paid off.
“We’ve felt that support from them because they are really interactive on social media which is good. It’s nice to have that, you want that bond with the fans, and unfortunately they haven’t been here this season.
“That’s been frustrating for us but hopefully we can get them in here next season and they can give us an extra 10 per cent.
“It’s unfortunate we weren’t able to do a lap of honour with them at the end of the Walsall game, and it’s a shame for the fans not to be here to do that with us as well.”
The end of a long, unusual and tough campaign must bring with it a certain sense of satisfaction with the mantlepiece now brimming with sparkling new glassware.
“I feel proud of my performances and I feel like I’ve worn the shirt with a lot of pride,” he commented. “I feel like it’s been a really good season for me and I know it’s a cliché, but we didn’t achieve what we set out to achieve as a team, which is the most important thing.
“We want to put that right next season.”
Congratulations to Callum from everyone at the club. We’ll have more from him on the official website later this week as he talks about the season as a whole.
