Newtownabbey’s Jonny Evans has been named Player of the Year by West Bromwich Albion’s Supporters’ Club.
The Premier League defender pipped ex-Manchester United team-mate Darren Fletcher to the prize at the fans’ awards on Tuesday.
Last summer Evans, a former pupil at Belfast High School, moved to The Hawthorns from Old Trafford having made 196 appearances for the Red Devils.
He has become a firm favourite with the Baggies faithful playing 32 times in all competitions for Tony Pulis’ team.
Evans is expected to be a key figure in Michael O’Neill’s Northern Ireland squad for the European Championship in France which kicks off next month.
