The Season In Stats

17 May 2013

After a season full of highs and lows, PNE.Com takes a look back at how the 2012/13 campaign panned out in terms of player statistics.

The first team squad played a total of 56 games, 46 in League One and ten in various cup competitions – that’s 84 hours of football!

Jeffrey Monakana and Nicky Wroe made the most appearances for the Club - each compiling a total of 47 run outs over the course of the season. 

North End scored 73 goals in total, 51 in the league and 22 spread over the Capital One Cup, FA Cup and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Wroe finished as the Club’s top scorer with 11 goals in all competitions during his debut season with the Lilywhites. 

The former Barnsley trainee managed a total of eight successful strikes in 38 league games, while three came in cup competitions.

Stuart Beavon was forced to settle for second place, scoring nine goals in a total of 37 matches.

Goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann and centre back Bailey Wright brought up appearance landmarks of their own, both surpassing the half century post as PNE players. 

Meanwhile, Anthony Elding, Joe Garner, Lee Holmes and Paul Huntington all enjoyed their 200th career run outs during the campaign. 

Ben Davies, Will Hayhurst and Wright all established themselves in the first team squad and will be hoping to build on their positive performances in 2013/14.

Elding, Declan Rudd, Steve Simonsen and Lee Trundle were PNE’s best behaved players – none of whom received a yellow card, never mind an early bath.

Meanwhile, Keith Keane’s all-action, tough-tackling style of play earned him a total of 12 cautions – none of which led to a second booking or dismissal.

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff topped the red card’s list, with his two dismissals coming away at Oldham and Bury’s Gigg Lane.
