Nottingham Forest’s Ben Brereton has taken to his personal Twitter account to issue his thanks, after he landed the Sky Bet Championship’s Apprentice of the Year award.
Brereton was rewarded for a fine breakthrough season in the Forest first-team, which has seen the 17-year old become one of the Championship’s stars.
Forest handed Brereton his debut back in January and the striker has gone on to score three goals in his 13 first-team appearances.
After winning the award last night, Brereton took to social-media to say: “Great moment! Like to say thanks to everyone at the club that’s supported me staff and players also huge thanks to all my friends and family.”

Brereton has become a regular for Forest in 2017, first-of-all under interim manager Gary Brazil and now under Mark Warburton, who was appointed at the City Ground last month.
In Warburton’s four fixtures in-charge, he has used Brereton from the start on every occasion, showing the faith he has in the teenager.
Brereton featured in Forest’s 2-0 victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon, which helped the Reds move a step closer to securing their safety in the Championship.
