Eastman Is Your POTY!

Tom takes quartet of awards

17 July 2020

Tom Eastman has come out on top in the Player of the Year awards for the 2019/20 campaign.

The U's central defender has made over 350 appearances for the U's since signing in 2011, and has won numerous seasonal awards in that time.

He's at it again this time round, with four awards heading the twenty eight year old's way.

As well as winning your vote as the Colchester United Player of the Year, he also won the coveted Players' Player, and the CUSA's Player and Away Player awards.

Your votes also came in thick and fast for the Young Player of the Year, and exciting talent Kwame Poku raced away to claim first place.

And fellow wingman Callum Harriott was the winner of the Hospital Radio POTY award.

There were plenty of stunning goals to choose from in the Goal of the Season category, and it was Callum's strike against Macclesfield Town here at the JobServe Community Stadium that won the vote.

Eastman was delighted to hear the good news when it was revealed to him.

He told the official website: "To be honest, it's come as a lovely surprise. Thanks to everyone who has voted for me, I'm really pleased to have won these awards."

"It's been a crazy season, but I think it has been mainly positive for us on the pitch with getting in the Play-Offs and having the decent cup run we had.

"There was massive disappointment amongst everyone at the club when we lost at Exeter and I'm sure all our supporters watching and listening were just as disappointed.

"I must have been doing something right to get these awards, and once again thanks to all the fans who voted for me.

"We missed them when they couldn't be at the Play-Off games and I hope we'll see them all back at the stadium as soon as we can safely have them back."
