It was the Ryan Sessegnon show at last night’s EFL awards, as the youngster claimed five awards in an impressive haul.
It has been an incredible season for Fulham teenager Ryan Sessegnon. After breaking into the side at the start of the campaign, the seventeen year old has established himself as the first name on the London club’s team sheet and has notched an impressive fourteen goals and six assists. The teen claimed the much coveted Championship player of the year award, as well as featuring in the Championship team of the season.
Sessegnon’s impressive form has seen him called up to the England U21’s squad by manager Aidy Boothroyd, where he made his debut against Ukraine at Bramall Lane last month, and he has been linked with a host of top half Premier League clubs
The Fulham star was, firstly, named in the EFL club developed XI. An award that recognises individuals that have risen to the top through the ranks of an EFL club. He was in fine company alongside Dele Alli and Kyle Walker. As well as this, Sessegnon found himself inducted in to the 2017/18 Championship Team of the Season. He then claimed the Championship Apprentice of the Year award following his superb first season in the Football League.
Despite strong competition from Norwich’s James Maddison and Wolves’ Ruben Neves, Sessegnon claimed the EFL Championship Young Player of the Season, taking his trophy tally to three. The Fulham academy graduate then picked up the final award of the night, as he beat off competition from Cottagers team-mate Tom Cairney, and Ruben Neves to win the Championship Player of the Season.
Despite his impressive evening, Sessegnon will still be hoping to add a promotion with Fulham to his impressive and ever-increasing CV.
