Midfielder Jason Taylor was the big winner at Barrow AFC’s awards night last Sunday and he is pleased that his hard work has been recognised over the course of the season.

Taylor marked what has been a successful first campaign at Holker Street by bagging five prizes during the presentations at the Cross Bar, including the club’s Player of the Year award.

After struggling for game time at previous club AFC Fylde, the 32-year-old has really got back on track with the Bluebirds, with the only three league games he’s missed this season being down to suspension.

His horde of awards have come as a reward for the commitment he’s shown in the middle of the park, where his consistent performances have frequently set the tone for AFC.

Taylor said: “On a personal level, obviously I’ve done well and I’ve got a few awards and obviously it’s nice- it makes a change.

“I always set high standards for myself - obviously, I’m not really a flair player, I just aim to be as consistent as I can week in week and that’s just sort of how I’ve based my career on so far.

“Obviously, people have liked what they’ve seen this season and I’ve managed to pick up a few awards along the way with it.

“I think we’ve had several highlights - we’ve had some cracking away wins this season, where we’ve dug deep, like Solihull, Eastleigh away, and Wrexham was a great night.”
