3rd Place: Zaid Griffin (Feyenoord) 15%
2nd Place: Andrew Kelly (Villarreal) 40%
1st Place: feargal a hickey (VFB Stuttgart) 43%
Feargal just edges Andrew to the Division 5 MOTY even with Andrew winning the league by 11 points, the side that Feargal took over at the start of the season was 1 that most thought would be fighting relegation. A Cup win & a promotion later and VFB will not only be playing in Division 4 next Season, but will also have a shot in Europe. Andrew’s Villarreal side got back to Division 4 in style, winning the league by 11 points alongside Zaid’s Feyenoord side who were also relegated last season.

Timo Plattel was a revelation in goal for FC Twente, at the start of the season when Twente were shipping goals at a rate of knots, Platell was still coming up with MOM awards and as such was picked in the Division 5 TOTW on 5 occasions. Plattel has since signed for Espanyol who will be playing Division 5 football themselves next season.
