Morsy Named Player of the Year
Saturday, 13th Apr 2024 20:06

Skipper Sam Morsy has been named the Supporters Club’s Player of the Year.

Morsy was handed the gong on the pitch following the 1-1 draw with his former club Middlesbrough at Portman Road, while manager Kieran McKenna won the Irene Davey Patron Award, named after the long-serving Supporters Club patron, who died earlier this year.

Manager Kieran McKenna said after the match that his skipper is a worthy winner of the Harwich Rosebowl.

“He has [been so consistent]. I think a deserved winner,” he said. “There have been so many of the boys who have stepped up very well but I think Samy’s shown great leadership again on the pitch and at the training ground.

“But on top of that, the quality of his performances, the way that he’s dictating games on and off the ball, the details in his game now that weren’t there two years ago that he’s worked ever so hard on and the fitness to be available for so many games, he’s another one that’s just done the five 90 minutes back-to-back. Testament to him and well deserved.”

Wes Burns won the Portman Road Moment of the Season award for his goal against Coventry and Jeremy Sarmiento the Unforgettable Moment for his late winner against Southampton.

Prior to the game Sophie Peskett carried off the Women’s Player of the Year and Finley Barbrook won the Academy Player of the Year.

The man is phenomenal. We’d be a shadow of the team we are , without him.

I just wish the club would sort out these awards., ( it was a disaster last season too). The ground was practicable empty today when the players were given them. I doubt many fans actually realised the awards were being given out at the end of the match.

Well deserved but the club have got to sort these award ceremonies out, and how!

For two years now it’s been an utter shambles. Doing them after a game just does not work. Do them before a game or don’t do them on the pitch at all. There were even less fans left in the ground to witness the awards today than last year and that was embarrassing enough.

Terrific player. Imagine if he had pace.

After the game doesn’t work as far as I am concerned. I suspect many couldn’t stay because of car parking charges. Overstay and you end up with a £60 PCN

A terrific player, a superb leader and a possible future manager. Richly deserved award.

A truly fantastic player and leader. So consistent across the last 3 seasons, we would be a shadow of a team without him. A brilliant signing by PC and thrived under McKenna. and we need to get his contract extended urgently. One of the best ITFC Captains of all time....Up there with Mills, Holland.
Such a battler, physically strong, links our play together back to front, motivates all the team, makes himself available, never tires,

Never worse than a 7/10. Rarely gives the ball away and happy to take it in the tightest of positions. Just wish he was 5 years younger !

I'd agree - consistency has won him this...well done Sammy!

100% deserved! Mr Dependable, always gives maximum effort and a proud captain.

LowroadBlue added 20:48 - Apr 14
Well deserved always gives 100%
Shame there was not more fans to see him get the award.
Might be idea to give the award before the game when the ground is full rather than the end of the game when people have trains to catch and car parking issues.
