Christian Nørgaard has been named Brentford FC Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year. The Danish international midfield player took two of the prizes at the Club’s Player of the Year 2022: Live Show, held at Sky Central tonight, Wednesday 18 May. Christian topped the vote of his peers and also the poll of the Bees fans but was unable to attend the event due to a late family commitment.
The event was shown live around the world with the support of our Official Virtual Meetings and Events Partner, Bluejeans. Thousands of fans tuned in to watch and heard from the stars of the 2021/22 season. Head Coach Thomas Frank, Captain Pontus Jansson and top scorer Ivan Toney were among those who were interviewed as part of the show.
Christian is coming to the end of his third season with The Bees. He has played 35 Premier League games this season, scoring three times, including both home and away against Arsenal. Christian also contributed four assists and has gone past 100 appearances for The Bees this term.
Christian picked up two of the six awards presented on the night. The success of Brentford B as well as our women’s sides was also celebrated during the 90-minute show. Those watching at home also got to see some of the best moments from the campaign and the Club will make as much as possible available to watch again in the coming days.
The first awards presented were for the Players of the Year for Brentford Women First Team and B Team. Goalkeeper Emily Boycott was named Brentford Women First Team Player of the Year. Defender Cara Graham won the Player of the Year Prize for Brentford Women B Team.
Nathan Young-Coombes was next up on stage. He was named Brentford B Player of the Year. That came just 11 days after he became the latest graduate from the B Team programme, making a Premier League debut against Southampton.
Sergi Canós was the evening’s other award winner. His strike against Arsenal was voted the Club’s Goal of the Season. It was the first of the entire Premier League season and set The Bees on the way to an opening night 2-0 victory.
