Double award for Webster

Adam Webster has been named Player of the Year by supporters after his impressive first season in BS3. 

The 24-year-old, who has made 43 appearances in all competitions for the Robins, including three goals, was voted for by City fans through the Supporters Club & Trust and by the Senior Reds.

Josh Brownhill was named Young Player of the Year by the Trust for the second successive season and Andi Weimann’s hat-trick at Sheffield United won the Champagne Moment of the Season.

The Senior Reds also recognised Lloyd Kelly as Bristol-born Player of the Year.

Webster, who along with his team-mates received the awards at the training ground this week, match, said: “I’m very honoured to receive these awards and a big thank you to those who nominated me. Credit should go to the rest of the lads though as we are very much one squad who all work hard for the cause.

“I’ve really enjoyed this first season and everyone, players, staff and fans have made me very welcome.”

Founder Member of the Supporters Club & Trust Mike Adams said: “Adam has made a real impression since he arrived last summer and I think the majority of supporters would agree that he has been one of our outstanding players this season.

“Josh Brownhill has been incredibly consistent and deserves the Young Player award for a second year and who can forget Andi’s hat-trick at Sheffield United.”

Webster follows Bobby Reid as Player of the Year by the Senior Reds and secretary Keith Perry added: “There’s always a lot of discussion around the awards but I don’t think anyone can say that Adam does not deserve this. He has been a great addition to the squad and we wish him and all the players well for this exciting time of the season – we’re right behind them.” 

The Supporters Club & Trust-led award for Supporter of the Year – which is decided by the first team squad – goes to Stanley Hughes, founder of the One Stream In Bristol, a voice for City fans via a weekly podcast. 

Club captain Bailey Wright has been named PFA Community Champion 2018/19. He was nominated by the Bristol City Community Trust for his work off the field.
