Lolley crowned Player of the Season

3 May 2019

Nottingham Forest are delighted to announce that Joe Lolley has been crowned as the club's Player of the Season.

Following thousands of fan votes, the 26-year-old came out on top to claim the award for the 2018-19 season.

The winger picked up a huge 56 per cent of the vote, with Jack Colback coming in second place with 22 per cent and Joao Carvalho third with 10 per cent of the vote.

He said: "I'm delighted; it means a lot. The fans have voted for me and I would like to say thank you to everyone who voted.

"Individually, I have had a good season. It would have been nice, as a team, to have got to the play-offs but it hasn't worked out. But from an individual point of view it has been a good season and to be recognised for that is a good feeling.

"It has probably been my first full season in football without injuries, which is weird to say that at 26. I haven't had the longest career in football but it is my first season fully-fit and it gives me a platform to kick on from."

Lolley, who has scored 10 league goals and chipped in with 11 assists this season, is the latest name to be added to the trophy with greats such as Des Walker, Stuart Pearce and Andy Reid claiming the award and Lolley following on from last year's winner Ben Osborn.
