Jed Wallace on double award win

Hear from the PFA Community Champion...

7 May 2021

Jed Wallace has labelled the 2020/21 campaign as a "learning curve" after the attacker claimed the silver medal in the MSC Player of the Season vote.

The 27-year-old has scored 11 goals in the Sky Bet Championship this year in claiming back-to-back runner-up positions, and he told millwallfc.co.uk of his desire to maintain his consistency in his attempts to claim the crown in 2021/22.

"It's always nice to recognition," he said. "I think any player who finishes above the likes of Hutchy [Shaun Hutchinson] and Coops [Jake Cooper] must have done quite well, so I'm happy with that.

"It's two years in a row I've done that now, so I've been consistent with my performances, as have the team. I've got to keep going to try and pip Bart! He's been amazing again.

"It's been a varying season for me in terms of position - I've played up front, just behind, off the right and more, so it's been a learning curve for me. I've had my good games and my bad ones, just like everyone else, but I've always given 110% and given my all. I think the supporters appreciate that."

The attacker is a double award winner this season, having also claimed the PFA Community Champion award for his work in the local area.

"My football performances is one thing, but being able to help people in the community is something I take massive pride in. I haven't been able to do as much as I would have liked to have done this season because of COVID-19, but that's something I really enjoy doing, especially since I've had kids of my own."
