Chelsea have today announced the winners of their 2019/2020 club awards.
The Blues have revealed the winners of several award categories as the stars of last season have been rewarded for their outstanding achievements in the famous blue shirt.
Here is the lowdown on this year’s award winners.
Croatiain international midfielder Mateo Kovacic has been crowned Chelsea’s Player of the Season.
The 26-year-old made 47 appearances for The Blues in all competitions last season in which he netted two goals. The player made one of Chelsea’s midfield positions his own in what is a hugely competitive area of the pitch. Kovacic was instrumental in Chelsea again securing UEFA Champions League football.
The 2019/2020 campaign saw the breakthrough of youngster Billy Gilmour from the Chelsea academy system into the first team.
The Scot was handed his senior debut by manager Frank Lampard back in August last year and the player has never looked back.
Gilmour has gone on to feature for the Chelsea first team on 11 occasions while the player has been reliable when called upon by the club’s Development Squad.
Further senior honours for club and country are no doubt very close for this talented young Scot.
Chelsea’s 2019/2020 Goal of the Season award has been received by an unlikely recipient, defender Fikayo Tomori.
Not known for his goalscoring ability, Tomori netted a stunning effort from range in Chelsea’s impressive 5-2 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux during the first half of the season.
No defender had won the award in the last decade prior to Tomori collecting the accolade.
There was only ever going to be one winner of Chelsea’s Women’s Player of the Year award, forward Beth England.
England has led by example for Emma Hayes’ side, netting 21 goals in 24 games. Her double in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup final against Arsenal helped Chelsea lift the trophy for the very first time.
The forward also netted in Chelsea’s 3-3 draw at Manchester City in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, a result which ultimately won The Blues the league title.
England is an outstanding talent and her achievements simply could not have gone unnoticed.
