Left Foot Forward

GRAHAM Carey has been named the 2015-16 Pilgrim of the Year.

The Argyle playmaker, who has scored 12 goals and provided many assists this season, has impressed the Green Army since his arrival from Scotland in the summer. 

Usually playing just off of a central striker, Carey's inventiveness, range of passing and dead-ball striking has been the difference in many of Argyle's best performances and results this season.  

Carey, who polled 34% of the vote, only just edged out fellow Irishman Carl McHugh, who received 33% of the ballot. McHugh's conversion from central defender to midfield has worked the oracle, with Carl putting in a string of strong performances, scoring four goals. 

Curtis Nelson was in third place, with 20% of the vote. 

The Young Pilgrim of the Year award went to Hiram Boateng, who polled 50% of the votes in the category. Boateng made a huge impression after joining on loan from Crystal Palace prior to the season's beginning, and would display a calmness above his tender years in many commanding performances in Argyle's midfield. 

After suffering an injury in November, Boateng returned to Palace in January, following the expiry of his loan. He returned, to the delight of the Green Army, in March, and once again established himself in the heart of Argyle's midfield. 

Fellow loanees Oscar Threlkeld (21%) and Craig Tanner (20%) were second and third in the poll.
