Striker Sam Winnall has spoken of his delight at picking up two trophies in Barnsley’s end of season awards.

Speaking to the Official Site having been named the Disabled Supporters’ Player of the Year and winning our Goal of the Year competition, he explained.

‘I’m absolutely delighted to have received two awards this season. Picking up the Disabled Supporters’ Player of the Year is very humbling and I’m very grateful for it. Like anything, this season has had its ups and downs but I feel that for my first season at this level, as it has been for many players this term, I’ve done quite well.’

Having scored 13 times in 36 appearances in a season where he had a hamstring problem over Christmas, he was of course delighted to see himself get two nominations for Goal of the Year and it was a better feeling when the strike against Notts County came out on top.

‘It was one of those where it was in as soon as it left my boot and it was a great feeling to see it hit the back of the net. I always enjoy scoring goals, like any striker, but there have been a few that stand out for different reasons.’

As for now, he admits he’s looking forward to a good rest over the summer, and then hopefully he’ll get a good and solid pre season under his belt so he can hit the ground running and look to top those 13 strikes from this season to push us further up the table under Lee Johnson who himself will be having his first pre season with us.
