Several days ago Linfield official media announced that the club’s player of the year for season 2020-21 was Shayne Lavery.
A Linfield tv interview with Shayne was featured on this website before the weekend, in which the forward expressed his delight at receiving this hugely prestigious award.
There are 2 trophies for Linfield player of the year - the cup which has been in use since the award was introduced and which remains in the club’s trophy cabinet - as well as an engraved trophy which the player gets to keep on a permanent basis.
The engraved trophy is provided and sponsored by former director Ronnie Morrison and in the photos below, Ronnie (currently a Vice President) is pictured presenting the two trophies to Shayne Lavery.
Upon receipt of the two trophies, Shayne spoke to the gathering expressing his appreciation for the award.
