Tranmere Rovers midfielder Connor Jennings claimed the North West Football Awards National League Player of the Year on Monday evening.
The NWFA, held at Old Trafford Cricket Ground, is an annual awards ceremony which pays tribute to and recognises those who have achieved footballing excellence both on and off the field.
Chairman Mark Palios, vice chairman Nicola Palios, first team manager Micky Mellon and Jennings were all in attendance as TRFC were nominated for four awards including boss Mellon, who was in contention to win Manager of the Year, just to be pipped to the post by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.
Jennings, however, was victorious on the night, and a fitting tribute to a man who suffered a serious illness earlier in the year but came back within a matter of days and provided the assist for team mate James Norwood to score the winning goal at Wembley and secure our return to the EFL.
So far this season, Jennings has been a consistent performer in Mellon’s side and has scored three goals in his last three matches in all competitions.
Well done Connor!
