Josh Cullen claimed the Championship player of the season award in recognition of his sterling displays during Burnley’s title win.

The midfielder also won two big trophies at the club’s end-of-season awards, voted the club’s players’ player of the season as well as the fans’ player of the season.

Cullen saw off competition from Blackburn Rovers’ Dom Hyam and Freddie Woodman, of Preston North End.

Elsewhere, Burnley also secured the best club marketing, sponsorship or engagement campaign award for their partnership with Classic Football Shirts.

More than 500 guests from across the football world attended the star studded event, hosted by broadcasters, Eilidh Barbour and Dion Dublin, at The Point at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.

“What a night,” said organiser Laura Wolfe. “The quality on show at this year's awards was magnificent.

"The work on and off the pitch on show in the Northwest is something we are all immensely proud of and we congratulate all of our finalists.

"Thank you to the fans, clubs, journalists and of course our partners who get behind the awards each year. This one felt special and we look forward to championing the region again next year.”
