Coventry Editorial 6th May, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

STRIKER Callum Wilson cleaned up at this year’s end of season awards by claiming a hat-trick of accolades to cap of what has been an exceptional season.

Wilson was voted the club’s Player of the Season by supporters after receiving 42 per cent of the overall vote with goalkeeper Joe Murphy coming second with 32 per cent and Franck Moussa in third with 10 per cent.

The 22-year-old, who was named in the Football League Team of the Year, also collected the coveted Players’ Player of the Season award at a sold out event in the Village Urban Resort on Sunday evening after topping a poll taken by his team mates.

And 22 goals in all competitions with a goal ratio of a goal every other game earned him the Top Goalscorer award.

It was also a night to remember for fellow Academy graduate Conor Thomas who came away with two awards.

The 20-year-old was picked as the club’s Young Player of the Year by manager Steven Pressley and his coaching staff and his hard work in the community earned him the Community Player of the Season award.

Thomas visited numerous local schools and events throughout the course of the campaign and has set an exemplary example which has led to him being picked for the gong by the Sky Blues’ charity arm Sky Blues in the Community (SbitC).

There was no surprise to see Franck Moussa take the Goal of the Season award for the second year running.

The Belgian midfielder, who scored 14 goals in 46 appearances this season, won the award for his stunning last gasp 35-yard strike to earn the Sky Blues a 1-1 draw at Preston North End in December.

And the final award was handed to midfielder John Fleck who was named Trainer of the Season.

The 22-year-old has been recognised for his hard work and dedication on the training pitch in a new award introduced by Pressley who said his week-long work ethic and dedication was worthy of recognition.
