Dann Named Players' Player of the Year

12 May 2016

Scott Dann has been voted as Crystal Palace's Players' Player of the Year for 2015/16.

The defender popped the poll which was chosen by members of the Eagles' first-team squad, and collected the inaugural trophy after Alan Pardew's side decided to hand out their own prize this year.

Last season's Player of the Year has enjoyed another stellar campaign in SE25, scoring six times in all competitions including five in the Premier League - something no other defender across the division has managed.

As well as this, he has started in all but two matches throughout 2015/16, meaning he has played more minutes than any other player in the Palace squad, and captained the side at times.

After collecting his prize, the centre-back said: "Because you train and play with these guys day in day out, it means a lot and it's a nice touch."

On the award's introduction, skipper Mile Jedinak said: "We’ve been talking about doing it for a little while so it’s nice that it has now happened. 

"It’s great to win something that your peers have voted on as you see them on a daily basis, meaning you can vote for them on how they are around the place as well as how they get on in games."
