Birmingham City striker Clayton Donaldson netted a hat-trick of awards at the club’s official end of season ceremony on Sunday 3rd of May, reports bcfc.com.
The first of the three awards that the former Brentford striker landed was the club’s top goal scorer award after the free transfer managed to haul in an impressive 16 goals in all competitions.
The hot shot has been one of the shining lights from former manager Lee Clark’s reign at the club with Welsh winger David Cotterill being one of the others.
Donaldson’s second award of the night was the Supporters’ Player of the Season. The award comes after the supporters recognised the tireless work that Donaldson puts into every performance of his as the 31 year old never gives up in any game, even when he is asked to be a super sub like he was at Derby County when he scored the equaliser in the 95th minute.
The final award that the striker bagged was the big one of the evening, the Player’s Player of the Season.
Similar to what the supporters saw in the former Bee’s striker, club captain Paul Robinson, who has recently been offered a new one year deal at the club, also said the same sort of thing.
The ex-Bolton Wanderers player highlighted Donaldson’s fantastic work ethic and his desire to get onto the end of every ball that is pumped up to him.
Elsewhere at the awards ceremony, teenage sensation Demarai Gray managed to pick up two awards after a successful first full season in the first team.
The 18-year-old won the Young Player of the Season award as well as the goal of the season award for his break a way goal which sealed a 2-1 win over midlands rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The manager Gary Rowett also picked up an award for moment of the season, which was his return St.Andrews back in November 2014.
His first home game in charge saw the Blues beat recently promoted Watford 2-1. The game has been branded the game that turned Birmingham City’s season around as the club then went on to produce several above average performances which saw them enter the top six of the form table in the championship.
Finally, the last player award to be given out was to Birmingham City ladies star Karen Carney. The club captain picked up the Special Achievement award to commemorate her getting her 100th England cap as well as her also being introduced into the Birmingham City Hall of Fame.
