Jamie Reid named National League South Player of the Year


It’s been a season which has seen the records tumble at Torquay United.

First, of course, incredibly the Club won their first ever championship as they got their hands on the National League South title.

Then on Saturday’s final day the Gulls notched the quickest goal in their history – straight from kick-off against St Albans City.

Now, for the first time in many moons, one of their Club’s heroes has his hands on a Player of the Year award.

Torquay and their striker Jamie Reid didn’t know what to expect when they found themselves in a place the Club never thought they would be.

They went into the unknown but, sometimes, a surprise in football isn’t such a bad thing!

Reid found the net no fewer than 29 times in the National League South alone, it came at a rate of a goal every 115 minutes and handed him the Golden Boot accolade too.

His partnership with on-loan Saikou Janneh brought about a joint tally of 46 goals.

With a forward-line like that, it’s no shock fingers are on prizes down in deepest Devon in what was a season to remember for Gary Johnson’s Gulls.

Now we can eagerly look forward to next season to see if Reid can continue is fine form in Non-League’s highest tier.
