Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma share prizes at Virtual Awards Event

2019/20 season celebrated tonight

23 August 2020

Said Benrahma has been crowned the 2019/20 Brentford FC Supporters' Player of the Year with Ollie Watkins taking the Players' Player and Goal of the Season prizes.

The awards were announced at tonight's Virtual Awards Event which also saw us say a final farewell to Griffin Park after 116 years of football in TW8. 

Said took the Supporters' award following a scintillating campaign which saw the Algerian attacker net 17 goals with nine assists. The 25-year-old struck two hat-tricks during the season, one against Hull City and the other against Wigan Athletic, and was voted the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for July as well. 

Ollie Watkins' 25-goal season was recognised by his teammates as he took the Players' Player award, beating Said into second with Christian Norgaard back in third. Ollie's Sky Bet Championship haul, which included a hat-trick against Barnsley in September, was only bettered by Fulham's Aleksandar Mitrovic as Ollie also picked up the London Football Awards EFL Player of the Year.

It was a double for Ollie on the night as his goal against Blackburn Rovers was voted our Goal of the Season. Two down against Rovers at Griffin Park in February, Ollie controlled Henrik Dalsgaard's ball through and then lashed a volley into the top corner from 25 yards as we fought back to earn a point.
