Clarets Player of the Year Awards 2015

25 May 2015

George Boyd and Tom Heaton took the major honours at the Clarets Player of the Year Awards 2015.

Boyd capped a fine debut season at Turf Moor as he was named Burnley Football Club’s Player of the Year by supporters in the club website’s online vote.

The tireless winger, who endeared himself to the Clarets faithful and embodied the valiant effort to retain Premier League status - as well as contributing some spectacular strikes against Newcastle and Manchester City - pipped Tom Heaton, Jason Shackell and Kieran Trippier to the award.

And it was England new-boy Tom Heaton who took the coveted Players’ Player of the Year Award after a remarkable debut season in the Barclays Premier League was recognised by his Clarets comrades.

The 1-0 victory at Aston Villa saw the 29-year-old stopper reach 10 clean sheets in a season that saw him deny two players from the spot, as well as making some sensational stops from some of the finest players in the world.

Another major honour was scooped by Boyd for ‘Goal of the Season’ as his fantastic match-winning strike against Manchester City at Turf Moor was voted the best on the night.

Elsewhere, Danny Ings was presented with the ‘Top Goalscorer’ award after netting 11 times in the Barclays Premier League.

And the ceremony at Turf Moor also saw the annual Centurion awards handed out to captain Jason Shackell, Ben Mee and Danny Ings, who all made their 100th appearances in Claret and blue during  Burnley’s second ever assault on the Barclays Premier League.


Bradley Jackson was named as the Youth Team Player of the Year, beating off strong competition from fellow nominees Ntumba Massanka and Christian Hill.

There was also a long-service award for groundsman Aiden McGough who has been at the club for over 25 years.
