Fresh from a memorable evening at the EFL awards last night and classes back at Motspur Park this morning Ryan Sessegnon spoke of his delight following such a successful haul.

“It was such an incredible feeling for me to be picking up these awards,” he reflected. “It was such a special moment for me and it really shows how well we have been playing this Season. Hopefully we can continue in the same way until the end.

“As a young player you want to experience these things. You want to always continue to learn and improve and for me to go there yesterday and witness what I had achieved was truly amazing.”

Sessegnon beat team-mate Tom Cairney and Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves to win the Championship Player of the Season award on top of being named Young Player of the Season.  

“I am so proud to receive all these awards but especially the Championship Player of the Season,” Sessegnon stated. “I never would have imagined I would win (Championsip) Player of the Season.

“Both Tom Cairney and Ruben Neves are superb players so it just shows how well we have been playing this Season.

“I just want to carry on the way I have been going. Whenever success does come I just enjoy it for a moment but then put it to the side and focus on the main objective. The main objective for me now is to get us to the Premier League.”

Ryan was not the only Fulham player to be recognised as he was named in Championship Team of the Season alongside Tom Cairney and Ryan Fredericks.

Finally, Sessegnon scooped League Football Education (LFE) Championship Apprentice of the Year and was also named in the Club developed XI to take his number of awards to five on the evening.
