Duo bag awards

5 May 2017

United's Sky Bet EFL League One title winning campaign has ended with two further awards.

 
Chris Wilder has won the Manager of the Month gong for April, after six wins from the final month of a remarkable campaign saw the Blades end a record breaking season with 100 points, finishing 14 points ahead of second placed Bolton.
 
Meanwhile, Leon Clarke has been named Player of the Month, having been instrumental in the aforementioned success.
 
Clarke scored goals in the wins over Coventry, Northampton and Port Vale, prior to a first-half brace in the Easter Monday success over Bradford.

Leon Clarke: "The manager has been the driving force behind our success, not just in April but throughout the season. It has been a nice end to the season for me personally, it is fantastic to be able to contribute and be part of it with the lads."

Chris Wilder: "Leon has been great of late, on a number of occasions he has been the best player on the pitch. His goals have been fantastic, but his strength, link up the play and general all-round game have been invaluable to our finish to the campaign. He has deserved his acclaim from the Blades fans."
