Frankie Is U's Player Of The Year

U's defender scoops top award on Monday

29 April 2019

After a superb season at the back, Colchester United defender Frankie Kent was named as the club's Official Player of the Year for 2018/19.

Frankie, who has made 43 appearances in all competitions so far this season, continued his impressive run of form with a goal and a clean sheet at the weekend against MK Dons.

And his performances across the nine months, which have helped the team to eighteen clean sheets in the league, saw him lift the top accolade in Monday's glittering ceremony at the JobServe Community Stadium.

It completed a rare double for Frankie, having previously been named as Young Player of the Year three seasons ago.

After playing every league game this season, Ryan Jackson picked up the prestigious prize of Players' Player of the Year, having also made the top three for the fans vote for Official Player of the Year.

Courtney Senior's flamboyant performances down the wing saw him pick up the Young Player of the Year award by some margin, with his trickery proving popular with the U's supporters.

The CUSA awards saw Ryan Jackson pick up a second award as he picked up the overall CUSA title, with Tom Lapslie's all action displays seeing him pick up the Away Player of the Year trophy.

Frank Nouble, who picked up Hospital Radio Colchester's award on Saturday, appeared more than once in the shortlist for Goal of the Season and it was his bamboozling effort against Newport that was chosen as this year's top strike.

And, having committed plenty of time to visits and Football in the Community, Louis Dunne was given the Community Player of the Year award.
