Leicester City held their annual awards ceremony to mark the conclusion of their men, women, and youth campaigns. Here are the winners and why they won.

With a season which has been full of startling highs and utterly abyssal lows, there are still winners in the squad. Players who performed excellently and deserved to be recognised. During the annual ceremony, they were recognised for their efforts.

Leicester City’s players of the season

For the Foxes, the best player of the season has been named as James Maddison. Voted for by supporters, there is little doubt as to why he was selected – he was my personal choice as well. Here is a snapshot of what got him selected.

In the Premier League alone, the English playmaker has achieved 10 goals and seven assists. Including all matches, the player has over 10+ goals and assists being the first player to reach this milestone for the club since 2018. Almost a ‘goat’.

Brendan Rodgers’ side saw Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall win men’s young player of the season. Once again, this English midfielder has established himself as a passionate, creative, progressive, and simply sensational talent.

For Lydia Bedford’s side, Shannon O’Brien took home the award in her first season with the King Power club. Remaining fit for most of the campaign, the attacker/playmaker has been instrumental to Leicester’s survival in the Women’s Super League. Also, my personal vote.

In the youth setup, defender Lewis Brunt, midfielder Sammy Braybrooke, and versatile talent Lydia Tilbury-Henry won their respective awards for coming into their teams and improving immensely. They brought results to the Leicester on their own.

Player’s players of the season

For the Northern Irish head coach’s team, the players selected ‘KDH’ as their player of the season. Once again, there is little doubt as to why the King Power side chose the homegrown talent. For them, the midfielder has been inspirational and hardworking, well deserving of recognition.

Bedford’s side saw goalkeeper Demi Lambourne handed the award. After a catastrophic injury to Kirstie Levell, Lambourne came into the side, provided leadership at the back and a cool pair of hands. The ‘keeper is a major factor in the Foxes not being relegated.

Goals of the season

Men’s goal of the season went to Youri Tielemans for his ‘cross turned shot’ curved attempt against Manchester United. A significant goal for many reasons, not least because it was almost too good. Again, this was my personal vote.

It would be unfair to say the Belgian ‘Starman’ has been terrible’. Though the player did fall off after his injury and after being forced into a different role with the long-term absence of Wilfred Ndidi. The midfielder has still notched up six goals and four assists while making 2.2 tackles per game in the league.

For the women’s goal of the season, there were several rockets and gracious attempts to choose from. It was O’Brien once again who took home the award for her effort again Durham Women. The goal was a spectacular volley and significant in our progression in the Continental Tyres League Cup.
