Ex-Coventry City academy player Jonson Clarke-Harris scooped the Sky Bet League One Player of the Season award following a prolific campaign in front of goal, scoring 29 times for the automatic promotion favourites.

Elsewhere, Tranmere Rovers academy graduate Will Vaulks was rewarded for his volunteer work off the pitch, receiving the PFA Player in the Community award for a second time.

Meanwhile, a number of former apprentices featured in the three divisional Teams of the Season, with four named in the Championship, five in League one and three in League Two.
