Troy Deeney rounded off his superb 25-goal season by winning two Player of the Season awards at Watford’s annual end-of-season dinner last night.

Having been presented with the Watford Player of the Season award prior to the Hornets’ dismal 4-1 home defeat against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, the striker was also handed the Players’ Player of the Season accolade at Shendish Manor Hotel.

The awards began with former Watford Observer Sports Editor and long-serving Hornets correspondent Oliver Phillips handing over the Supporter of the Season honour to his friend and club historian and statistician Trefor Jones.

Sean Murray emerged ahead of fellow nominees Alex Jakubiak, Jonathan Bond and Cristian Battocchio to lift the Young Player of the Season, but Battocchio didn’t leave empty-handed as he won the Community Ambassador honour.

One of the biggest cheers of the night was reserved for popular talismanic former striker Heidar Helguson, who called it an “honour” to become the latest entrant into the club’s Hall of Fame.

The 4-1 win at Sheffield Wednesday was selected as Team Performance of the season, while Gabriele Angella’s audacious flick in the 4-2 loss at Nottingham Forest saw the Player of the Season runner-up pick up the Hornets’ Goal of the Season.

Well done Troy. You lead from the front every game.....hardly got booked if you did at all........kept fit and avoided injury........ran and chased tirelessly..........
and if you went down, got back up on your feet without winging. Just hope we can ask one favor from the Pozzo's (if we're not pushing our luck)......give him a pay rise, keep him at the club on a new deal and sign an additional 20+ striker. Now that's ambition!

I know that there is very little loyalty in football any more. However, if Troy is settled and happy here after his incarceration when the club stood by him, then offer him a new improved contract and make him the highest earner. After all, Troy will have seen what happened to Vydra this season in the Premier league. How much game time did he get?
