‘No disrespect to the Luton lads..’ – Billy Kee issues honest opinion after EFL reveal



Billy Kee was the big winner for Accrington Stanley last night, swiping the League Two Player of the Year award after an electric season that has seen him bag 22 goals.

Along with manager John Coleman, Accrington took home two of the individual awards and will be hunting the league title to add to the personal accolades.

They’re locked in a battle with Luton Town, but appear to have the upper hand with two games in hand and a point gap.

Kee was named in the team of the season alongside team mate Sean McConville, whilst Luton had five players selected. Kee, speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph, believes that the balance was a little unfair on his side.

“No disrespect to the Luton lads but we have a lot of players who could be in that team but we still are little Accrington so perhaps don’t get the plaudits that other players get. I can go through all the team. It’s the lads at the back who keep clean sheets and make me look good. It’s about Sean McConville and Jordan Clark who put balls on my head and Kayden Jackson who has all the pace and has scored 15 goals this season, without penalties.”

The 27-year-old former Burton striker was still happy to receive the award, although he stressed he didn’t win it alone.

“It is an honour but I don’t win awards by myself though, it’s about all the lads.”

The Verdict

It’s heartening to see Kee pick up the main award ahead of the Luton Town squad and his comments are spot on. To have five players from one team in the squad would be fair enough if they were runaway leaders, but in recent weeks Luton have been average.

Accrington have been a team to poke fun at for many years, but it seems that is changing thanks to Kee, Coleman and the other players making it possible.
