Player of the Season awards handed out

AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Following yesterday's game against Millwall, a selection of Player of the Season awards were handed out at Vitality Stadium. 

The squad were brought out one-by-one to a standing ovation from the home crowd, with Scott Parker and his staff also recognised. 

CEO Neill Blake handed out runners up medals to the team, who were also given a trophy for finishing second in the Championship. Captain Lloyd Kelly lifted it in front of his squad, who were quick to open the champagne in celebration. 

Individually, Mark Travers scooped four awards, winning Supporters Player of the Season, Vice Presidents Player of the Season, the Daily Echo's Player of the Season and the Golden Glove. 

The 'keeper finished the season with 20 clean sheets to his name, as the Cherries also lost the fewest number of matches in the league. 

Elsewhere, Dominic Solanke picked up the Junior Cherries Player of the Season, having scored 30 goals in all competitions this season, the second highest in the Championship. 

Becki Bath was also there to represent the women's team and was given her Player of the Season award by sponsors Bournemouth University. 

There was also a nice moment for the AFC Bournemouth grounds staff, who were recently named as the Championship’s Grounds Team of the Season by the EFL.

Having been highly commended as part of last season’s award, Ian Lucas and his team have gone on to claim the top award for their work over the 2021/22 campaign.
