2022 Player Awards Winners

7 May 2022

Daniel Iversen picked up the two main accolades in Preston North End’s 2021/22 end of season awards!

The awards took place on the pitch at Deepdale following the conclusion of the final game of the Championship campaign – a 4-1 win at home to Middlesbrough.

On-loan goalkeeper Iversen received both Player of the Year awards up for grabs, one voted for by his teammates, with the other voted for by the supporters of the football club. The fan vote proved a close call, with defender Andrew Hughes narrowly missing out on the award.

Iversen, who was called up to his national side in March, has featured in every game this Championship season, coming up with countless impressive saves and keeping 13 clean sheets.

PNE fans also had their say on the team’s Young Player of the Year, with that award heading to 20-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg, who made his 50th appearance of the season against Middlesbrough.

Cameron Archer’s strike against Blackpool was a resounding winner for the Goal of the Season award, with 40% of votes heading to the striker who ended the campaign with eight goals to his name.

Elsewhere, Preston North End Community and Education Trust gave the Community Player of the Year award to club captain Alan Browne, mainly for his work in supporting TippyToes BabyBank.

Bambo Diaby has also been named as the PFA Community Champion for his fantastic work supporting the Ramadan initiatives, and Bambo also attended the Break Your Fast event at Deepdale during Ramadan.

Finally, Mikey O’Neill was recognised for his contribution to the U19s’ superb campaign – as well as his recent involvement with the first team – as he was handed the Scholar of the Year award.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners, and make sure to keep an eye on PNE.Com and iFollow PNE for reaction from all of our winners.
