Kyle Walker Wins PFA Young Player of the Year Award

Kyle Walker
Congratulations to Kyle Walker on winning the Young Player of the Year award at the Professional Footballers' Association ceremony.  He is thoroughly deserving of the award in this his first full season playing in the Premier League.  He has made the right back position his own in the Spurs team with exciting performances through the year.  He scored his first goal for Tottenham in the North London derby at White Hart Lane and was unfortunate that his goal against Bolton had to be ruled out when the FA Cup tie was abandoned.  He also made his full England debut and was named Man of th eMatch fo rhis performance against Sweden in November.

Walker is in good company with Glenn Hoddle a past winner.  Other previous winners with Spurs connections who won it while with other clubs include, Paul Gascoigne and Jermaine Jenas (at Newcastle), Scott Parker (Charlton & Chelsea) and Paul Walsh (Luton Town).

Congratulations, also, to Scott Parker and Gareth Bale who join Walker in the PFA Team of the Year.  Bale and Parker were the winners of the Player of the Year awards last season, awarded by the PFA and the Football Writers Association.
