Mee: My Best Season

28 April 2016

Burnley defender Ben Mee feels this season is the best of his career.

The Clarets ever-present this week picked up five Player of the Year awards at the Annual Supporters' Clubs Awards night.

And the Sale-born centre half, who made the switch from full back at Christmas and has helped keep 18 clean sheets, is now looking to end a memorable season in style.

He said: "Getting to play at centre back, using the experience I’ve gained over the past few seasons, has really helped me.

"I think it’s the best season I’ve had and I want to end it on a real high.

“It was really nice to be recognised by the fans, it’s a real honour and it’s great for me to be able to go and receive an award.

“To be recognised is great and for people to see what I’ve been doing on the pitch and show their appreciation by voting for me is great and it means a lot.”

The 26-year-old admits he will have one eye on Friday’s game between promotion rivals Middlesbrough and Birmingham at St Andrew's.

Brighton then play their penultimate game hours before the Clarets are next in action, at home QPR on Bank Holiday Monday.

But the Clarets just need four points from the next two games, including a last day trip to relegated Charlton Athletic, to earn promotion straight back to the Premier League.

Mee added: “I’ll have a look at the results on Friday and probably watch the game, but I guess it’s in our hands still.

"We are looking forward to Monday. It’s a long wait, and you just want to get it here and now.

"I’ve enjoyed the season as a whole, and obviously at the minute it’s going really well for us. Now we just need to get the job done!”
