Alan Browne Delighted To Receive Goal Of The Season Award

21 November 2019

On his return to Springfields on Thursday morning, Alan Browne was finally presented with his North West Football Awards Goal of the Season trophy.

Browne was named as the winner at the awards on Monday 11th November while on international duty with Republic of Ireland, and as he returned to training with the club he was able to collect his award.

The 24-year-old won the award for his goal against Bolton Wanderers at Deepdale last season, making it a double winner after picking up the club's Goal of the Season award back in May.

Discussing his latest award, the midfielder said: "It was obviously fantastic to see I had won it, I have been to those awards a few times and I haven't come away with anything so it was good to finally get my hands on a trophy and add to the collection.

"I remember the goal perfectly, I think I've watched it a hundred times so that helps!

"It's a fan vote so you are relying on people seeing it and voting for you and so it can be tough to win awards like this but thankfully I've managed to get my hands on it and it's nice to get that recognition."

Browne beat the likes of Vincent Kompany and Mo Salah to the award, and he admits he didn't expect to win after seeing the competition but has thanked the fans for the part they played as their votes helped him to pick up another trophy.

"I didn't even know who else was up for it and when I saw that I thought I had no chance so I didn't even really look on Twitter or anything on the night but when I found out I had won it I was obviously buzzing.

"I can't thank the fans enough for their support, it's obviously down to their votes so they have helped me to get the award. Obviously I did well to put myself in the running for it but without them I wouldn't have got it so it's a massive thank you to them and hopefully they continue their support for the rest of the season now."
