The award for the club's Scholar of the Year was presented to James Daly at the Premier League Youth Development Conference on Thursday evening.
Each of the 20 Premier League clubs are able to recognise their own scholar of the year at this event and James was presented with the award.
The club's Academy Performance Director, Steve Higham revealed after the presentation as to why the 18 year old received the award.
"James has shown tremendous application over the last two years which has seen him deservedly progress from the under 18s onto the 23s and experience involvement with the senior squad towards the end of the season. He should be extremely proud of the recognition he has received with this award and his hard work, dedication and endeavour has made him a role model for others if they are to make similar progress in our academy."
