Galloway Takes Under-21s Prize

Brendan Galloway capped off a fantastic first year at Goodison Park by being named the Under-21s Player of the Season for 2014/15.

The defender, an arrival from MK Dons last summer, took home the prize just four days after making his Premier League debut against West Ham United at Upton Park.

Galloway’s call-up to the senior squad came as a reward for a series of sterling performances for the Club’s development side, where he was a mainstay at the back throughout the Young Blues’ league season.

The 19-year-old was presented his award by Seamus Coleman and David Unsworth – the coach who has mentored the Zimbabwe-born youngster during his maiden campaign at the Club.

A delighted Galloway said: "It's been one of the best weeks of my life. I'm so happy.

"I have enjoyed playing with the Under-21s. I was up against some great competition and anyone could have won this award.

"Hopefully I can now cap this week with a debut at Goodison - that would be fantastic."

Galloway signed a five-year contract at Everton last summer after the Toffees agreed an undisclosed fee with MK Dons.

The ball-playing defender, who is comfortable operating at centre-half or left-back, made a total of 25 appearances for the Under-21s this season, scoring in matches against Fulham and Southampton.

Galloway’s name joins that of Tyias Browning, Victor Anichebe, Shane Duffy and Adam Forshaw – all previous winners of the award.

The 2014/15 Under-21s Player of the Season Award was sponsored by Vale Decorators UK Limited.
