League Two

Doyle's season to remember

27 August 2020

Earlier today, striker Eoin Doyle was announced as the 2019/20 Sky Bet League Two Player of the Season, after helping his former club Swindon Town gain promotion as champions.

The 32 year old, who was initially on loan from fellow League Two club Bradford City, helped fire the Robins to promotion, notching 25 goals in the process before the curtailment of the league season.  
 
Doyle’s heroics also saw him named the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month three times in as many months, something that has never been done before. And his accolades for the season did not stop there. In December 2019, Doyle became the first player in England’s top four tiers to score in 11 consecutive matches since Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy in 2015. 
 
On receiving the award he said: “I am obviously honoured to pick up the award, I don't think I deserve it though as there were a lot better players in the squad last year than myself. 
 
“I had a very talented bunch of players around to me and I was delighted that I could play in that team, the style of play suited me a lot and a lot of the players inside the dressing room were League One quality in my opinion. 
 
“I had played under Richie Wellens at Oldham once before so I knew how he wanted me to play, that made it really easy for me to go in there and hit the ground running, luckily for me the goals came in a really attacking team.”
 
The Irishman is now back in League Two for the upcoming 2020/21 season having signed for Bolton Wanderers and he is already targeting another promotion to add to his CV. 
 
“It is exciting times for the club and hopefully this is the first season of the success story at the club, they are a giant of a club for this division and we know that it is down to us to make sure we get them out of it,” he explained. 
 
“The manager is someone who knows how he wants the team to turn out, he knows the process of how to get us there and we have worked hard in pre-season to set those boundaries. 
 
“We all know how we are going to play this season and we know that we have to win these games to get us up, I have actually played with him before at Chesterfield so I know what he is all about, he is a man that is very good at his job.”
