Rovers defender Hayden Carter enjoyed success at Burton Albion’s end of season awards last night, finishing second in their Player Of The Year vote.
The young centre-back arrived at the Brewers in January undePirelli Stadiumr new manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, and he has since featured in all 23 league matches, starting and playing the full ninety minutes in each match.
Carter has also enjoyed success in front of goal, scoring four goals in what has been a successful loan spell with Burton.
His arrival at the Pirelli Stadium coincided with Hasselbaink’s appointment, which has seen a major upturn in form that has taken them from the foot of the table to mid-table.

The question now arises of where Carter’s future lies next season. He has shown his capabilities at League One level, so could he slot into the first team and become a regular part of the squad, or is another loan spell on the cards?
Rovers’ funds are limited in terms of incomings over the summer, and with Derrick Williams already off the books – plus Taylor Harwood-Bellis’ loan deal up – a centre-back will be on Tony Mowbray’s wish list.
Burton’s season ends this weekend with a Sunday dinnertime kick-off, with Burton making the trip to play-off chasing Oxford United.
Congratulations to Hayden on his award!
