Gongs for Reuben and Curtis
26th April 2014
REUBEN Reid has been voted as the Argyle Player of the Year for the 2013-14 season.The on-loan striker, who has scored 20 goals this season, was the fans' choice to succeed Onismor Bhasera.
Curtis Nelson was named as the Young Player of the Year.
Reuben has enjoyed the most prolific season of his career and the most prolific season by any Pilgrim for 20 years.
When the 25-year-old Bristolian scored in the Devon Expressway Derby, he became the first Argyle player to claim 20 goals in a campaign since Steve Castle in 1993-94. His 16 Sky Bet League 2 goals places him third on the division’s top-scorers’ list but he has brought so much more to our team than merely hitting the back of the net.
Born in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Curtis became an apprentice at Home Park in 2009 and rose swiftly through the youth-team and reserve ranks to make his first-team debut just a year and a half later.
During that season, he was called up by England and played for the Under-18 side against Italy. He has barely looked back since. This season, he has been a virtual ever-present and, today, he makes his 141st career appearance as a Pilgrim.
Congratulations to both men.
