8 May 2018

The Clarets celebrated a memorable season at their annual Player of the Year Awards night at Turf Moor on Monday evening.

Almost 900 supporters saluted manager Sean Dyche, his backroom staff and players as the awards were handed out to mark a season which will see the Clarets finish seventh in the Premier League and secure a place in European competition for the first time in half a century.

Goalkeeper Nick Pope was the big winner as he collected both the Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year prizes.

Steven Defour won the Goal of the Season award for his free-kick at Manchester United and received his award from Rita Seymour of sponsors NVM Solutions Ltd.

The top goalscorer award sponsored by Burnley FC in the Community was presented by Chief Executive Neil Hart to Chris Wood, who is currently tied with Ashley Barnes on 10 goals each.

Young Player of the Year is Dwight McNeil, who received his award from Liam Kilbride of award sponsor Bliss Charity.

Centurion awards were made to Stephen Ward and Ashley Barnes for making their 100th Burnley appearances during the current campaign. Ashley Westwood accepted the award on behalf of Barnes, who was absent due to the shoulder injury he sustained at Arsenal on Sunday, from sponsor Gary O'Neill of G O'Neill Plumbing Services and son Josh.
