(PRWEB UK) 11 November 2012
Digital Sports Group today announced that The PFA Facebook fan page of Ashley Cole has broken the 15% daily growth barrier making it the fastest growing Ashley Cole page on Facebook. The Facebook page has become a thriving hub for the Chelsea defender since it's launch and now boasts a vibrant and rapidly growing community of fans. The Facebook page along with Ashley Cole's player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
For the first time in his career, 2010/11 saw him end the campaign as a Premier League ever-present, having started all 38 league matches. It was a figure that helped him over the 200-game mark for Chelsea, and for the second time in his Stamford Bridge career he ended the season as Players' Player of the Year, and returned into the PFA's representative XI, the only Chelsea man in the side, as well as Uefa's Team of the Year for 2010.
After that ever-present league campaign in 2010/11 season, Cole only missed his first league game in the 3-3 home draw with Manchester United in early February. At 31, however, he found himself rested more often than in the past, a move which has enabled Ryan Bertrand to gain some invaluable first team experience.
Cole was outstanding in the Champions League ties against Barcelona, making a stunning clearance off the line in the first leg, while marshalling the defence impeccably in the Camp Nou following the sending off of John Terry and injury to Gary Cahill.
After winning his seventh FA Cup winners medal - a record - following the victory against Liverpool, Cole finished the season by adding the one trophy which had eluded him, the Champions League, to his collection. He also scored our fourth penalty in the shoot-out win against Bayern Munich.
Cole scored his first goal of the 2012/13 season in our 1-0 victory over Stoke City in mid-September.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Ashley Cole really has no shortage of fans after his performances for Chelsea this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Ashley Cole .”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
