In what was a very good month for the team, going top of the Championship and undefeated in the League, Joe Cardle was the stand-out player. Joe had a disappointing 2016/17 season but it was obvious in pre-season games that he was determined to fight for his place in the team. His goal tally for this season is now 8, which includes 5 in the past 5 games. Joe's trademark move of cutting inside has been added to with what seems to be an extra burst of pace. He is possibly enjoying the best form of his career. Mention must be made too of his attitude towards his team mates - always encouraging others and showing great team spirit.
Joe is now aiming for the third League title of his Pars career, in his second spell with the club. He was a key part of the teams that won the First Division (now Championship) in 2011 and League 1 in 2016. Joe has now played 213 games for DAFC (154 starts plus 59 sub), scoring 52 goals (2009-2013; 2015 - present).
