Player Of The Season: Ross McCormack

Friday 15 May 2015 13:30

Having taken a huge 58.7 per cent of the votes, Ross McCormack is your 2014/15 Player of the Season.

Following his summer arrival at the Club from Leeds United, McCormack got off the mark for the Whites with the winner against rivals Brentford in the Capital One Cup in August, before notching his first league goals in a 5-3 defeat at Nottingham Forest three weeks later.

But it was the turn of the year when the goals really started flowing, with the striker finding the net five times in January, including a hat-trick in our 3-2 victory over Forest at Craven Cottage.

He ended the season in scintillating form, too, with seven goals in his final seven games, notably notching another treble in our final home match of the season against promotion contenders Middlesbrough.

Ross’ closest contender in the poll was Marcus Bettinelli whose impressive breakthrough campaign with Fulham didn’t go unnoticed as he took 18.5 per cent of the votes.

Lasse Vigen Christensen, who produced a series of dazzling displays before injury curtailed his progress, came in third having been considered our best player this season by 6.5 per cent of fans.

Over the next few days, we’ll be looking at our top three’s best bits of 2014/15.
