Lions forward wins annual award

Steve Morison has been crowned the MSC Player of the Year for 2016/17.

The experienced frontman has netted 16 goals so far this season and has been at his influential best in helping The Lions with their push for the Play-Offs. Morison earned 40% of the vote, finishing ahead of runner-up Byron Webster (25%) and Ben Thompson in third (22%).

The 33-year-old, who will collect his award before kick-off at The Den on Saturday, said: "I'm very honoured to have been chosen as the Player of the Year.

"I think I've played some of my best football at times this season so am chuffed to have been recognised by the fans in this way.

"I know how uncommon it is for forward players to collect this award at Millwall which makes it extra special and it's a great feeling to join the list of winners.

"It's always nice to win individual accolades but my full focus is on helping the team finish as high up the League table as possible and prolonging our season further."

Lions boss Neil Harris added: "I'm delighted for Steve. On top of his performances over the course of the season, he has brought leadership and continued to put his body on the line, week after week, for his team and for this club. His importance to us is clear.

"The award will mean a lot to Steve who, in my opinion, has become a better player with age. He is a talisman for Millwall and we hope he can continue his good form during what is left of the campaign."
