Albion’s 2018/19 award winners

Strikers Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez claimed the top gongs when Albion’s end-of-season awards were handed out at The Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon.

Leading scorer Dwight was named Coral Supporters’ Player of the Season from an online poll, while his partner in goals J-Rod earned the plaudits of his team-mates, taking the Players’ Player of the Season. 

Albion legend Tony Brown, a man who knows a thing or two about scoring, came pitchside before kick-off in the SkyBet Championship clash with Rotherham to hand over their awards.

Dwight nipped ahead of his strike partner by also winning the Ideal Boilers Goal of the Season award. Again, a fans’ vote decided his memorable first goal against Stoke City in the 2-1 home victory in September was the pick of some cracking finishes from the Baggies this season.

Other awards saw Rekeem Harper named as Albion’s Young Player of the Season while our rising young talent Morgan Rogers picked up the Academy Player of the Season just 24 hours before joining up with England for the UEFA U17 European Championships in Ireland. 

And another of Albion’s budding young talents, Kyle Edwards, received the Community award for his outstanding contribution to the Club’s initiatives in the local area.

That leaves just one award to be settled - top goalscorer - which will see Dwight and Jay-Rod go head-to-head once more. 

Dwight went in to today’s game on 23 goals with his partner just two goals behind.
