Brentford midfield player Adam Forshaw has won a prestigious Football League prize.
The 22-year-old was named the Sky Bet League One Player of the Year at The Football League Awards 2014 this evening, Sunday March 16, at The Brewery, London.
The Sky Bet Player of the Year awards were voted for by managers of the clubs in each division.
Each manager was asked to list their top five players from this season in order, with the scores added up to get a shortlist and an overall winner.
Adam Forshaw was named as the best player in the division after all the votes were counted.
He beat off competition from Kevin McDonald, of Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Swindon Town’s Alex Pritchard, who were also on the shortlist.
Adam joined Brentford from Everton in the summer of 2012.
The midfield player completed a permanent move to Griffin Park at the end of a successful Youth Loan.
He initially signed for The Bees for one month but that was subsequently extended until the end of the 2011/12 season and the move was made permanent in the summer.
In his first season at Griffin Park Adam played 53 games in all competitions and was rewarded with a new three-year contract that he signed in June 2013.
This season he has played 32 games for The Bees and scored seven times, contributing five assists.
