Gray Crowned Championship Player of the Year

18 April 2016

Andre Gray has landed the prestigious honour of 2016 Sky Bet Championship Player of the Year.

The Clarets striker’s stunning 24 goals this season – 22 of which have helped ignite the Clarets’ promotion charge – deservedly earned him the award at the annual Football League Awards dinner in Manchester.

The 24-year-old, who pipped former Brentford team mate Alan Judge and Fulham’s Ross McCormark, is the second Burnley player to win the award in three years, following Danny Ings’ success in 2014.

The Sky Bet Player of the Year awards were voted for by managers of the clubs in each division.

Each Sky Bet Championship manager was asked to list their top five players from this season in order, with the votes added up and the overall top 3 forming the shortlist. 

At the awards dinner on Sunday, Burnley FC in the Community narrowly missed out on the Community Club of the Year award, which was won by Charlton Athletic.
