Top Awards for Hourihane, Winnall & Nyatanga

5 May 2015

Ahead of Barnsley's 5-0 thumping of Rochdale on Saturday, the Club celebrated its End of Season Awards on the pitch.

The top award of the afternoon went to Conor Hourihane, with the Irishman scooping the Supporters' Player of the Year Award. The 24-year-old was presented his award by Reds Owner Patrick Cryne, and added to his tally of 13 goals with a strike in stoppage time against The Dale.

Lewin Nyatanga received the award from his colleagues - Players' Player of the Year - after a solid season in the heart of defence which also saw him score five goals in 51 appearances.

Young Player of the Year went to second-year Academy Scholar Mason Holgate, whose 22 appearances have dazzled the Reds fans since his professional debut against Doncaster Rovers at Oakwell back in December.

For his stunning strike against Notts County, Sam Winnall was presented the Goal of the Season Award by his Head Coach Lee Johnson, and Barnsley's 13-goal striker was also awarded the Disabled Supporters' Player of the Year Award.

In the Reds' Academy, Mo Saeed - set to start his scholarship at Oakwell next season - was awarded Most Promising Academy Player, whilst goalkeeper Jack Walton received the Academy Player of the Year Award.
