Burns Nominated For PFA Fans' Player of the Year
Friday, 20th May 2022 10:24

Blues wing-back Wes Burns has been nominated for the PFA Fans’ League One Fans’ Player of the Year award following his hugely successful 2021/22.

The 27-year-old is up against Rotherham’s Alfie May, Scott Twine from the MK Dons, Sheffield Wednesday’s Barry Bannan, Ross Stewart of Sunderland and ex-Blues striker Will Keane, who helped Wigan to the League One title for the award which is determined by a public vote.

Burns, who signed a new three-year contract on Monday, won three Town player of the year gongs and was named in the EFL Team of the Season having topped-scored for the Blues with 13 goals.

In January, the Welshman won the PFA Vertu Motors Fans' Player of the Month award for League One.

Such a light in an otherwise frustrating season. Can't wait to so KMc's team for 22/23 with Agent Burns running wild

Well done Wes but has no chance against a League 1 colossus in Will Keane.....how broken a Club were we to get so little out of him! Thank goodness those days are gone and hopefully more like Wes coming through the door this summer as we def need help on other flank and up top as a minimum.

Congratulations again Wes,thoroughly deserved.
With regards to the others on the list, Scott Twine is the one player we should have signed, when we had the chance last year ,after he left Swindon.We could have got him on the cheap,he's probably now out of reach.
He would have made a huge difference to our midfield and a player I believe will go on to bigger and better things .

Got to be Scott Twine hasn't it? Great for Burns to get the recognition though.

It's a fans vote SouperJim, so will be either Bannan or Stewart based on the clubs. All we can do is vote Burns and hope :)

Doh, didn't read it properly. Interesting that Forest Green have 3 of the 6 nominations for league two, might split their vote and end up none of them winning!

Great for the player and the club but it puts Wes even more in the shop window ….. and increases his value. That said, he appears to be a very loyal bloke who loves his football at Ipswich under KMK so I am confident that unless there are really serious offers for him, his head will not be turned.

Bert, he signed a new 3 year deal on Monday!

Saxon.Blue - I realise that but given all his awards his worth will be known to Championship clubs so regardless of his 3 year deal it will not stop others eyeing him up. I would not expect either him or the club to seriously consider any approach. Regrettably, contracts mean very little in football these days.

Gforce I entirely agree with you and mentioned him in January---we missed a trick there and would certainly have gone up with him on board------would still get him now though will cost a lot more and i BELIEVE Matt Smith is ouy of contract at Rotherham-----can our slick sales team ie. Ashton convince them to come here?
