Seamus Coleman is the Everton Player of the Year
Rampaging right-back Seamus Goalman pulled off a double victory last night claiming the Everton player of the year and also the players player of the year awards. He narrowly missed out on the goal of the season award too.
The awards crown a fine season for the Republic of Ireland defender who has scored a brilliant seven goals from right-back. He won on an online fans vote on EvertonFC.com in a landslide victory and Seamus himself described himself at being “Humbled and Honoured” at the award.
Coleman collected his award from the main man Roberto Martinez and told evertontv: “It’s indescribable to win these two accolades.
“When I arrived here in 2009 I couldn’t have imagined I’d be stood here with these awards in my hands.
“There must have been a lot of contenders for both of these awards this season and that says a lot about this team.”
The award comes just one week after being named in the PFA team of the year.
“Seamus is a good example of a footballer with an incredible attitude and appetite for the game,” manager Roberto Martinez said just last month. “He grows month by month. He’s one of the best full-backs in world football.”
