According to the News and Star, former Derby County midfielder Callum Guy has dominated Carlisle United’s end-of-season awards after an excellent campaign.

Nottingham-born Guy came through the youth ranks at Derby.

The 24-year-old enjoyed loan spells at Port Vale and Bradford City, while making his Derby debut in the EFL Cup defeat at Barnsley during the 2017-18 campaign.

Guy later joined Blackpool in the summer of 2018 on an initial loan deal. He made the move permanent during the January transfer window in 2019.

After a year of struggle with the Tangerines, Guy dropped down into League Two with Carlisle and this past season he has shown he has the potential to bounce back.

Guy topped the League Two assist charts with 14, four more than the next best. Statistical website Whoscored rank him as the second-best performer in the league.

 

The midfielder’s fine form earned him Carlisle’s Fans’ Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and the News and Star readers’ Player of the Year awards.

Derby have lacked a player with such creativity over the past two seasons.

The Rams were the lowest scorers in the Championship last season. Right-back Nathan Byrne topped the club’s assist charts with four alongside Martyn Waghorn.

Graeme Shinnie, Jason Knight, Max Bird, Tom Lawrence and Kamil Jozwiak counted for a combined four assists all season as Derby narrowly avoided the drop to League One.
