SONNY Bradley has been named Argyle's official Pilgrim of the Year for the 2016-17 season.The centre-back, who was ever-present in the first 42 games of the Pilgrims' Sky Bet League Two season, arrived at Home Park in the summer, having been released by Crawley Town. Throughout the season Sonny has lead by example, putting in a string of committed defensive performances - none more so than Argyle's heroic 0-0 draw at Anfield in the Emirates FA Cup - as well as scoring seven goals, often at the most crucial of times.
Sonny polled 61% of the overall votes, ahead of last year's winner Graham Carey, who garnered 15% of the vote. In third place was David Fox, who scored 7.64% on the poll - three votes ahead of Oscar Threlkeld, on 7.45%.
The winner of the Young Player of the Year vote was Arnold Garita, who scored just over 40% of the vote, putting him ahead of other leading candidates Louis Rooney, Ben Purrington and Alex Fletcher.
Arnie may have had the vote won as early as September; in only his third game for Argyle, Garita started up front for the Pilgrims' Devon Derby against Exeter City, and scored the second goal in a convincing 2-0 win. In all, Arnie has made 17 appearances, including 10 starts, in an injury-hit season, scoring twice, and charming everyone with his infectious personality.
