Hughes And Bryson Claim Awards

Hughes And Bryson Claim Awards

Will Hughes and Craig Bryson claimed the Young Player of the Year and Player of the Year awards ahead of Derby County's 4-2 victory against Watford in the last home league game of the season to cap fine campaigns for both midfielders.

Hughes has continued his great form in his second full season in the first squad and has picked up further caps for England Under-21's alongside the Football League Young Player of the Year award. After another fine campaign that has seen The Rams up to third in the Championship table Hughes has won the Sammy Crooks award for the second year running.

Bryson has been the driving force behind Derby's midfield and his appearances this season have seen him bag sixteen goals along with twelve assists in the league as well as a further two assists in the cups. The Scottish midfielder came to the iPro Stadium from Kilmarnock and won the Jackie Stamps award during his first season making him a double winner of the award. Talking to dcfc.co.uk about the award Bryson said:

"It is obviously a massive achievement in my career to win the award for the second time in three years - I am absolutely delighted. I would like to thank the supporters that voted, it could have gone to near enough any player in the team, so I am just delighted that I won it. The fans have been outstanding with me ever since I signed for the club. I am delighted to win it. It is a great honour."
