ASHLEY Westwood was the big winner at the Clarets' annual Player of the Year awards night on Sunday.

The midfielder won the club's official award which was voted for by supporters – and made it a memorable night by also being named Players' Player of the Year by his Burnley team mates.

Westwood picked up the awards at a gala awards night that took place at Turf Moor as a reward for a fantastic season, which saw the 29-year-old play a key part in helping Sean Dyche's side secure a fourth successive season in the Premier League.

The former Aston Villa man has started 30 league matches in his most productive campaign in a Claret shirt.

And his performances, driving Sean Dyche's side on from the middle of the pitch, were pivotal in the eight-match unbeaten run from the turn of the year which propelled the Clarets towards safety.

The 29-year-old also played a part in the Burnley's historic run to the final qualifying round of the Europa League and, as well as topping the club's Premier League goal assist tally with seven, also scored his first goals for the club.

"They're special awards. I never expected it and to have the lads and the fans voting for me is a great honour," added Westwood.

"I am very proud to collect these awards and I can't thank the players and the fans enough.

"For me, it's the best season I've ever had and that's down to the lads and the staff.

"I want to kick on and now do even better in a claret shirt."

Republic of Ireland international Jeff Hendrick, won the Goal of the Season award for his volley in the 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Easter Monday, which effectively cemented Burnley's top flight status for yet another season.
