DAN THE FAN: Who was hot and who was not this season?

First published in Sport

AFTER waving goodbye to the 2013/14 season last Saturday, it’s time to take a look back at Mark Cooper’s squad, and how they performed over the campaign.

Wes Foderingham – 8 (out of 10) ANOTHER superb season – and it would be a surprise if he was still at Town next season.

Nathan Thompson – 8 ONE of the most consistent performers, he needs to be made full-time captain next season.

Nathan Byrne - 6 AN inconsistent year for the full-back. Lost at sea when defending, should just concentrate on being a winger.

Massimo Luongo – 7 AFTER a good first half of the season, the midfielder tailed off in the latter months of the campaign.

Grant Hall – 5 THE Spurs loanee formed a decent partnership with Darren Ward early on, but his inexperience cost points on more than one occasion.

Tijane Reis – 5 AFTER a decent first few games, the Portuguese winger struggled throughout thanks to injuries.

Ryan Harley – 5 ON paper, the experienced midfielder had everything needed to be a key player, but he fell short.

Ryan Mason – 6 BLIGHTED by injuries, but when given the chance, showed natural talent.

Nile Ranger – 7 WHEN he was doing what he does best, he turned Town into promotion contenders, but his baggage was too much to carry.

Alex Pritchard – 9 TOWN’S most reliable player. Expect to see him on a bigger stage next season.

Dany N’Guessan – 4 DECIDED to give up around Christmas, won’t be missed.

Jay McEveley – 7 SINCE joining in early 2012, the defender has been inconsistent, but he enjoyed a successful 2014.

Yaser Kasim – 7 ONE of the best free transfer deals in a number of years, the Iraqi international was vital in a defensive midfielder role.

Louis Thompson – 7 ANOTHER success story from the youth set-up, finished the season in superb form, key for next season.

Miles Storey – 6 SENT out on loan when he was needed. A natural goalscorer, needs to be trusted.

Alex Smith – 5 DUE to a serious injury the former Fulham man never got his chance.

Darren Ward – 6 AFTER playing nearly every game of the season until mid-March the centre-back run out of steam.

Jack Barthram – 5 A DECENT back-up, played well when called upon, and deserves a new deal for next season.

Ty Belford – 6 UNFAIRLY criticised by the fans, and the manager early on, but showed signs of a decent keeper. Michael Smith – 6 Another to frustrate since his arrival, but he will play a huge part next season.

Raphael Rossi Branco – 7 THE Brazilian-born defender turned out to be a useful squad member, deserves a new deal.

George Barker – 5 Our signing from Brighton in January only enjoyed a handful of appearances. One for the future.

Ben Gladwin – 6 ENJOYED a decent first season in professional football. Big prospect.

Jack Stephens – 8 GENIUS loan signing from Southampton. Made a huge impact, imperative he’s re-signed.

Troy Archibald-Henville – 8 MAJORITY of his season was ruined by injuries, but on his returnformed a winning partnership with Stephens.
