23 April 2014

Shittu collects Player of the Year award

Defender Danny Shittu has been voted this season's Junior Lions Player of the Year.

The defender, who was as impressive as ever in 23 appearances in 2013/14 before injury ended his season, picked up 18% of the votes, just pipping David Forde (16%), who won the MSC's Player of the Year vote, and Martyn Woolford (15%) to first place.

"I'd like to thank everyone who took the time to vote for me," Danny told

"It's always nice to receive recognition from your own supporters and I'm delighted to have been picked for this season's Junior Lions award.

"Naturally I'm frustrated that injury ended my season prematurely, but I will be cheering the lads on as ever in our last two games. I've no doubt that they will go out there and finish the job, which is keeping us as a Championship club."
