Luke Ayling – 9 – Possibly the shock of the season, when we signed him I was confused more than anything. We had Berardi as a starter and Coyle as backup, which seemed more than enough to me. However, I was proved wrong. His attacking prowess was key to our success this season, not that he lacked anything in the defensive department either. His partnership with Kyle Bartley on the right side of the defence was massive, they’re as good a partnership off the field as they are on it and that showed in their performances. An absolute steal from Bristol City, it seems bizarre that he couldn’t make it into their team. It’s worth remembering he can also play as a CB in a back 5/3 or even fill in for a team who only has three centre-backs like ourselves… An amazing first season from Luke.
