MARK Marshall is the new Telegraph & Argus/JCT600 Bradford City player of the year.

The flying winger also crowned an outstanding season by winning the T&A most consistent award.

He pipped Josh Cullen into second place for both prizes but the on-loan West Ham midfielder won the players' player of the year title, which is selected by the squad.

Marshall picked up the prestigious main award, voted for by the club's fans, at last night's presentation at Valley Parade.

Bantams boss Stuart McCall said: "Marshy has been terrific for his overall consistency game-in, game-out.

"You sometimes say with wingers that one in every four or so, they are outstanding and will win you the game. But he has been so consistent throughout.

"There have been times when I've played him on the left and the right, even up front. We've used him in a variety of positions and he's always effective.

"He's got six goals now and is one of the highest for assists in the league. He crosses and shoots equally as well with both feet.

"We always tell our full backs to push wingers on to their weaker foot but if you show him one way he can shoot, if you show him the other, he can shoot. He's been a big threat for us throughout the season."

Marshall's winning margin for the T&A most consistent trophy, based on individual marks out of ten for each match, was the closest ever.

Both Marshall and Cullen boast an average of 6.93 – with the winger just shading it by 0.0016.

Nicky Law was third, ahead of James Meredith – who was narrowly third behind Cullen for the main prize – and Tony McMahon.

McCall said: "You can go down the list and that shows it's been a team effort. There are a lot of contenders.

"When it comes to voting around this time, people are often influenced by what they've done recently.

"But I look back on a lot of strong performances leading up to Christmas. If you had voted then, it could have been three or four different people winning it.

"We have maintained that level of consistency as a team thanks to a lot of hard work."
