Ronan Curtis has won the Under-21 International Player of the Year prize at the FAI (Football Association of Ireland) Awards.

The Pompey forward was honoured at the event in Dublin towards the end of a successful season for club and country.

He was called up to the senior Republic of Ireland side for the first time back in September and made his full debut in a draw with Northern Ireland two months later.

Curtis – who is currently sidelined with a finger injury – has netted 12 goals in 40 appearances for the Blues following his summer signing from Derry.

He was also nominated in the International Goal of the Year category for a fine strike against Kosovo, but lost out to Aiden O’Brien.
