Oscar Threlkeld wins March Player of the Month.

Congratulations to Oscar Threlkeld, who is Argyle Life’s Player of the Month for the first time. He is closely followed by Jamie Ness (11.82) who, like Ruben Lameiras in third (11.03), takes his place on the monthly podium for the first time. March wasn’t the best month for Argyle, with just one point picked up on the road following a draw at Fleetwood and a loss to Charlton. The last gasp winner against Bristol Rovers at Home Park was followed up with the demolition of Southend on Good Friday. Lameiras, who ranked seventh before the Shrimpers arrived in Plymouth, was instrumental in that match, and received an average rating of nine and the man of the match bonus from each scorer to project him into third place. Carey, meanwhile, misses out on the top three for only the second time this season; the other month was September, when he was sent off against MK Dons and missed the subsequent three matches. Between them, Threlkeld and Ness were the two most consistent players this month, and rightfully take the top spots. As it was, Threlkeld’s assist against Southend nudged his average match rating high enough to pip Ness to the title. Our congratulations go to both players, who have recovered from injuries during the first half of the season to provide a tangible boost to the team as they press for promotion.
