Naylor Named Players' Player Of The Season

Midfielder honoured by team-mates at gala dinner

24 April 2019

Tom Naylor was named Players’ Player of the Season at Pompey’s 2018/19 awards dinner.

The midfielder – who has made 48 appearances since signing from Burton last summer – received the most votes from his team-mates.

Meanwhile, Matt Clarke was selected as Greene King Player of the Season by guests at the gala event in the Victory Lounge.

Jamal Lowe picked up the SG Fleet Goal of the Season prize for a second successive campaign, courtesy of his sumptuous finish at Wembley in the final of the Checkatrade Trophy.

Jade Bradley was named Pompey Women Player of the Season, while Kenny Jackett chose Ronan Curtis as his Young Player of the Season.

There were also awards for academy defender Joe Dandy, who won Milkwood Care Scholar of the Season, and Lee Brown, who collected the Player in the Community prize.

The night started with a video message from chairman Michael Eisner, as well as a welcome from chief executive Mark Catlin.

Host Andrew Moon interviewed Jackett, Lowe and skipper Brett Pitman on stage, while a raffle and auction raised funds for Pompey in the Community and the club’s academy.

Entertainment was provided by after dinner speaker Bruce Grobbelaar, who spoke about his ‘wobbly legs’ tactic that helped Liverpool beat Roma in the 1984 European Cup final.
