Midfielder wins Huddersfield Town’s top accolade

- Lewis O’Brien named Player of the Year for 2019/20
- Midfielder received 65% of votes from supporters
- Christopher Schindler and Karlan Grant finished second and third respectively

Lewis O’Brien has won Huddersfield Town’s Hargreaves Memorial Player of the Year Trophy for the 2019/20 campaign!

The midfielder received a resounding 65% of the supporters’ votes, which were collated in association with the Huddersfield Examiner.

Christopher Schindler, who won the award after the previous two seasons, was second with 10%, whilst Karlan Grant was third with 7%.

Lewis, who only made his Town debut in August 2019, has gone from strength-to-strength this season and quickly asserted himself as a First Team regular. He ended the campaign leading out the Terriers as Captain against Millwall.

His battling, energetic and hard-working performances didn’t go amiss with the Huddersfield Town supporters who made him the first Academy graduate to win the award since Andy Holdsworth in 2008!

During the 2019/20 campaign, Lewis made 39 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice and setting up four goals for his teammates. The second of those goals was also awarded as the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month for January.

Well done, Lewis!
