PLAYER-OF-THE-YEAR: Michael is the boss at Peterborough United
Michael Bostwick has claimed four Peterborough United player-of-the-year awards.
Bostwick won the Peterborough Telegraph poll a couple of weeks ago, collected the BBC Radio Cambridgeshire prize before the final home match of the season last weekend, and tonight (April 26) he received the ‘Forever Posh’ player-of-the-year award and the top prize from the Posh away support
‘Forever Posh’ is the football club’s official supporters club and they hosted tonight’s presentations.
Goalkeeper Luke McGee won the players’ player-of-the-year award, Marcus Maddison won the Junior Posh prize, Leo Da Silva Lopes collected the young player of the year trophy and there was a special presentation to boardroom host Bob Burrows for his outstanding contribution to the club.
McGee was runner-up in the ‘Forever Posh’ poll, while Maddison was runner-up in the away travel vote.
Bostwick said: “This club feels like home for me. I love the place and I hope I can carry on here.
“It’s been a very frustrating season. We were there or thereabouts before Christmas, and we got close at times in the new year, but we couldn’t quite get the results we needed when we needed them. We can’t dwell on it. We need to learn, pick ourselves up and go again next season.
“We have a lot to do, but the manager works tirelessly every day and it’s up to us to deliver the performances.
“We are where we are in the league for a reason.”
Bostwick is about to enter the final year of his Posh contract.
