The Supporters’ Clubs held their annual player of the year evening last night which saw Tom Heaton win the main award for the player of the year while Jeff Hendrick, in his first season at Turf Moor, secured the goal of the season award for his goal against Bournemouth in December.

That brought an end to the evening that had started with the two awards to recognise the club’s achievement in winning last season’s Football League Championship title. The League were slow to present the trophy last year and the supporters’ clubs, whose event had been held prior to the QPR and Charlton games, had to wait a year to make a presentation to manager Sean Dyche and one to the team which was collected by Heaton.

The awards from all the individual supporters’ clubs followed either side of the traditional pie and peas supper with the recently formed Disabled Supporters Group there for the first time.

The Special Achievement Award this year went to Andy Farrell just three days before the 25th anniversary of that triumphant night when we went to York in our thousands and came home as champions.

Andy represented the club for seven years as a player, making over 330 appearances. He twice played at Wembley for us, was the first player to come on as a substitute in a game and score twice. He wore every number at one time or other including the number 1 when he went in goal against Stockport after Chris Pearce had been sent off. He’s now a very valued member of the coaching staff within the academy, currently working with the under-23 development squad.

John Little and Barrie Oliver, from Earby Clarets and the Supporters’ Club, presented the awards to Dyche and Heaton with Bev Todd (Rossendale Clarets) making the presentation to Andy Farrell. At the end of the evening Hendrick received his award from Boundary Clarets’ member Rocky Mills while Damian Wilkinson from West Yorkshire Clarets had the honour of presenting the player of the year award to Heaton.
