Heaton Is Supporters' Choice

26 April 2017

Tom Heaton was named as the Supporters’ Player of the Year as the Clarets’ fans handed out their 2016/17 awards at a celebratory Turf Moor event last night.

Heaton narrowly topped a poll, taken on the night, of around 400 supporters from the various supporters’ groups to win the overall award.

The Clarets’ goalkeeper and captain earlier picked up a number of other awards from the individual supporter clubs, with Michael Keane, Ben Mee and Jeff Hendrick – for his wonder goal against Bournemouth - other multiple winners.

Heaton (pictured above receiving his award as the overall supporters' choice from Damian Wilkinson of West Yorkshire Clarets) said: “It was a wonderful night enjoyed by all the players.

“Many thanks to the supporters for putting it on and the awards they voted for and presented.

“I was honoured to receive those I did and I know the other lads felt the same.

“As the manager said at the end of the evening, the support we get home and away is always appreciated and we will need it again over the final few games to help us all achieve our goal.”

As well as the player prizes, manager Sean Dyche received a special award on behalf of his staff and squad for their achievement in winning the 2016 Championship title.
