Our Team of the Decade polls certainly sparked discussions and divided opinions – and after hundreds of votes were cast by Rebels supporters, the team of the 2010s is complete.
The goalkeeper position proved to be an easy decision for most people, with 74.6% choosing Jack Turner.
The back four generated a lot more debate. George Wells was a popular choice at left back, winning 73.6% of the vote. Right back was a much tougher choice, but Sean Fraser – who has now made 324 appearances for the club – got the nod with 45.1% of the vote, pushing Josh Jackman (41.8%) into second place.
Votes for the two centre-back positions were also spread fairly widely, but ultimately the long-serving pairing of Mark Nisbet and Guy Hollis attracted the most votes – 51.1% and 46.2% of people chose them respectively.
The left midfield and right midfield slots also had emphatic winners, with James Dobson (83.8%) and Warren Harris (84.8%) winning comfortably. Central midfield was predictably a tough one to call – but Lee Togwell (65.4%) and Matty Lench (46.6%) came out on top.
Finally, the strike partnership is Eddie Smith – who scored 95 goals in 149 appearances between September 2012 and March 2016 – and Manny Williams, who himself has now played in 105 games, most notably scoring the winner at King’s Lynn in the Southern League playoff final. Smith was the choice of 43.6% of people, whilst Williams was chosen by 40%.
Congratulations to our Team of the Decade and thank you to all supporters for contributing!
