McCarthy named Player of the Season

By SFC Media time Mon 14 May Player Awards

Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy was the big winner as the club’s end-of-season awards were handed out.

McCarthy was voted as Under Armour Fans’ Player of the Season, winning the supporters’ poll by a resounding margin.

The keeper, who came into the team in December and played a big part in the club securing its Premier League status, was also recognised by his teammates with the Players’ Player of the Season prize.

The Sure Goal of the Season award went to what was undoubtedly the most meaningful strike of the whole campaign, as Manolo Gabbiadini’s effort at Swansea came top of the fans’ poll.

Terry Paine’s President’s Choice Award this year went to defender Jack Stephens, with the centre-back being honoured for his performances and commitment to the team.

Young Player of the Year went to Jake Vokins, while Kiera Skeels was named Girls’ Regional Talent Club Player of the Year.

Additionally, midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg was honoured with a new award given on behalf of Katharina Liebherr for a player who has made notable strides in their game and had a major impact on the season.
