2023-24 SFCU Player of the Season: RESULTS

And the results are in for the 2023–24 SFCU Player of the Season!

As always, huge thanks to Grant, Alex & James for making this possible and everyone who voted throughout the year for making this happen! The full list of voters is here, so if you don’t like the results, that is who to blame. Or vote more often yourself. :wink:

But without further ado…

Joe Lolley is your 2023–24 SFCU Player of the Season

With 11 MOTMs, 4 second-places and 6 thirds, he picked up 46.5 points. Lolley is the first player to win the award back-to-back.

A fair way back in second place was Anthony Cáceres (4 MOTMs, 4 seconds, 4 thirds; 24 points), the 2021–22 winner returning to the podium after falling to 16th last season. Just behind him was Hayden Matthews (4 MOTMs, 5 seconds, 2 thirds; 23.5 points), who played basically only half the season.

There were a few falls from grace compared to last season, with Róbert Mak dropping from 2nd to 11th and Max Burgess from 3rd to 12th. Rhyan Grant didn’t quite have his worst season on this score, but finished in 19th with just half a point.

You can find the full results for every match here, and I’ve also done the usual blog post with a few bonus stats and graphs.

All winners:

Thanks for playing!


Not that this one was a huge surprise, but remind me in the future not to mention anything about the results in the pre-match pub to @jubal1 . No-one can be trusted!


This is why we can’t have nice things…

Immense thanks again for doing this Rowdy, one of these years I’m going to actually be sober enough to vote after every game… :pray:

Life contract for Haydos please. That’s absolutely amazing he’s placed third, not only given the lesser number of appearances, but especially given the tendency of votes to land on those higher up the pitch. He’s already equalled Wilko’s SFC total of 4 MOM’s. :hushed:


Lolley first player to get 2 in a row.

I reckon he’s a chance for the treble.

Crazy that Rodwell has more points than rhyno…

Surprising, didn’t think Grant had a bad season at all and from memory I gave him votes now and then. But I suppose he didn’t have many stand out games and that’s what gets you the points.

Thanks Rowdy! Looking forward to next season already.


Brilliant… love the analysis


Yeah it’s sometimes interesting to compare rankings using the total (average) votes vs points. Grant would move up from 19th to 14th, which I think reflects getting some-but-not-enough votes in many matches but also that he played a lot more than most of the 5 players directly above him.

On that measure, Corey Hollman would be in 11th, which I think is a fairer reflection of his season.


Amazing stuff. Must be very sweet for Lolley to win again
