Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has won the Sky Bet Championship Golden Glove award for the 2018/19 season.

The 22-year-old stopper finished the season with 21 clean sheets, two ahead of Middlesbrough 'keeper Darren Randolph.

Henderson was pipped by Randolph for inclusion into the Sky Bet Championship and PFA Championship Teams of the Season, but won promotion with the Blades, after they finished in the second automatic promotion spot.

Henderson is on loan from Manchester United and has been instrumental in Chris Wilder's side's march to the Premier League.

He was voted Sheffield United's Young Player of the Season and recently outlined his desire to stay at Bramall Lane next season.

Henderson said: "It's not possible without my teammates, but I've worked hard every day on the training pitch, it's my first season in the Championship so I'm delighted.

"I try to do my best every Saturday, Tuesday and that's what you've got to do to become the best goalkeeper.

"It's the best feeling in the world to get promoted, coming out here in front of our supporters. Getting the job done last week makes it a little bit easier.

"We wanted to get a result and win the title but unfortunately it wasn't to be, but we had some good teams chasing us down so to come out with promotion is outstanding."

The Sky Bet Championship Golden Boot was won by Norwich City's Teemu Pukki who scored 29 goals.
