Wes Burns was the big winner at Ipswich Town's end-of-season awards evening, which was hosted by Milsoms Kesgrave Hall.

The 27-year-old, who was the first of the club's 19 additions last summer, edged out team-mate Janoi Donacien to win the Players' Player of the Year award.

And his performances – which contributed to him being included in the EFL League One Team of the Year – also saw Burns scoop the Corporate Sponsors Player of the Year.

Burns has scored a total of 11 goals for the Tractor Boys this term, many of which have come while playing as a right wing-back.

And the Welshman could make it a hat-trick of prizes on Saturday when the result of the Supporters' Player of the Year vote is due to be announced.

Meanwhile, Bersant Celina's memorable effort against Crewe Alexandra in late November was the unsurprising winner of the Goal of the Season gong, while the Philip Hope-Cobbold Award for Service to the Community accolade went to Conor Chaplin.

For Ipswich Town Women, Bonnie Harwood won the Supporters' Player of the Year vote and midfielder Kyra Robertson was named Players' Player of the Season.

Like Burns, Natasha Thomas walked award with two awards in the form of the Corporate Sponsors Player of the Year and Philip Hope-Cobbold Award for Service to the Community, while the Goal of the Season went the way of Blue Wilson in recognition of her individual strike against Crawley Wasps in August.

There was also an EFL Long Service Award handed to the club's CEO Mark Ashton, who has been involved in the game for 32 years.
