Reid lands Player of the Year award

Bobby Reid has been named Player of the Year by City supporters, with Josh Brownhill landing the Young Player of the Year honour.

Bristol-born Reid has enjoyed a terrific first season as a striker, having been converted from his previous midfield role.

The Academy graduate polled the majority of the votes after netting 20 times this season, going close to winning the Sky Bet Championship golden boot.

He also collected the club’s Top Scorer award at the End of Season Awards, led by the Supporters Club & Trust.

Brownhill, 22, was named the Young Player of the Year ahead of Callum O’Dowda.

Unsurprisingly, Korey Smith collected the Champagne Moment award for his stoppage-time winner against Manchester United.

The Supporter of the Year award – which is decided by the first team squad – went to Jerry Tocknell.

The long-standing supporter Tocknell hasn’t missed an away game since 1986, bringing up his 900th consecutive match on the road following the club in January.

He works in the Ticket Office on home matchdays and stewards CATS Coach Two for away games, with many a legendary story of him helping out fellow fans over the years.

Thousands of supporters were in the Fan Village outside Ashton Gate for the End of Season Awards, presented by David Lloyd on behalf of the Supporters Club & Trust.

Meanwhile, Reid also landed three other honours: Disabled Supporters’ Player of the Year, Senior Reds’ Player of the Year and Senior Reds’ Best Bristol-born Player.

Young left-back Lloyd Kelly, a fellow Academy product, was named Senior Reds’ Young Player of the Year.
