Vital Blackburn - Forward of the Season
Ah yes. We knew it would have to come to this at some point.
The VB Award for the forward of the season was always going to be a tricky one given the dearth of a goal machine last season.
Benjani, Jason Roberts, Mame Biram Diouf, Niko Kalinic and Roque Santa Cruz were all eligible for the award after playing their part in Rovers survival season.
But given the fact that the highest scoring of this bunch managed six goals in total it became something of a debate in this award category than a fight for votes.
Due to the lack of performance some VBers even tried voting for Junior Hoilett and Chris Samba a something of a show of protest.
But a winner did emerge and it was mainly due to his prominent performances in the last 4 games of the 38 game season which bagged him the votes.
The winner of the Vital Blackburn Forward of the Season award goes to... Jason Roberts.
Well done Jason!
