In the Vital Blackburn End of Season Awards we now make it onto the player awards and the voting threw up some interesting results.

With the Rovers defence being a bit hit and miss (and I am being kind here) it is only fair to say that the category of defender of the season would require some imaginative thinking from voters.

With Chris Samba, Michel Salgado, Ryan Nelsen, the now departed Phil Jones and bearded warrior Gael Givet all playing big parts in the season there was plenty of choice of who to pick from.

Voting however turned into a straight fight between man mountain Chris Samba and genuine nut case Michel Salgado.

Tit for tat and vote for vote was exchanged but we do have a winner.

The Vital Blackburn award for Defender of the Season goes to… The King of Spain Michel Salgado.

Well done to Michel for a cracking season long effort at right back – he may be shy of a yard of pace in his mid 30’s but with timing, class, effort and a never say die attitude it has to be said this is deserved.
