Fans and supporters gathered Sunday the 5th of May to celebrate what has been an amazing period in Burnley Football Club’s history. Fresh off a draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, BFC players joined supporters to celebrate the club’s achievements and values in style.
A lavish evening filled with great food, great company and of course, awards, the Burnley FC Player Awards lived up to its claim of being “most prestigious night in the Burnley FC calendar”. This was certainly a night any fan of the club would be loath to miss.
“He’s hard work!” 😂 Catch all the action from the annual awards night, including these onstage antics!

Gathered in the decadently dressed haven of a stunning tent consuming the club’s car park, the guests were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne, before the evening began. Each player was introduced by the club’s Media Manager, Darren Bentley, entering the main body of the tent to the cheering of the crowd, before speeches were given looking back on the club’s most recent and historic successes, as well as BFC’s well-noted positive impact on the town. Time was also dedicated to honouring the achievements of the victorious Burnley FC Women, who won the FA National League Division One North and a second successive promotion.
The Clarets made every effort to give the supporters and players a night they’d never forget, gifting guests bottles of special Bowland Brewery Burnley FC beer and crowning the ‘Goal of the Season’ winner through collecting text votes from guests – around 700 votes were received overall.
AND THE WINNERS ARE
Clarets’ Player of the Year: Ashley Westwood
Players’ Player of the Year: Ashley Westwood
Goal of the Season: Jeff Hendrick
Youth Team Player of the Year: Bobby Thomas
Players Jeff Hendrick, James Tarkowski, Matthew Lowton and Jack Cork also received ‘Centurion’ awards to mark their 100th appearances for the club during the season, sponsored by O’Neill Plumbing Services.
