With player of the year awards being handed out, The Times Series is asking Barnet fans who the Bees player of 2012 was?

2012 was another eventful year for Barnet with an appearance in the JPT Southern Area final prior to the now customary final day escape from the clutches of League Two relegation.

The Bees had more than 40 players represent the club in 2012 but who would be the standout performer?

Ricky Holmes scored nine goals in 2012 for the Bees and has been one of the most consistent attacking players in the side.

His direct dribbling when playing either behind the striker of on the left side of midfield has caused opposition defenders several problems.

While he suffered an injury in October, which kept him out of the first team for more than a month, he made 48 appearances in the year for Barnet.

One of the Bees longest serving players, Clovis Kamdjo, also impressed in 2012. The Cameroonian was originally moved into a defensive midfield position by Lawrie Sanchez and has thrived in the role.

The arrival of Edgar Davids at Underhill helped Kamdjo and he produced a number of commanding displays in the heart of the Bees midfield in the second half of the year.

Centre-back David Stephens arrived from Scottish side Hibernian on transfer deadline day and has proved an inspired signing.

The 21-year-old has produced a series of powerful performances but is calm in possession and comfortable playing the ball out of defence.

Barnet had several loanees join the club in 2012 but the pick would be young defender Michael Hector.

The 20-year-old played several positions during his time with the Bees but looked most comfortable in the heart of the defence.

His composure on the ball and ability to start attacks from defence drew comparisons from Sanchez to a young Rio Ferdinand.

But who would be your Barnet player of 2012?
