Robinson Pleased With Recognition

Antonee Robinson says being named as the Under-18 Players' Player of the Season made up for a frustrating start to 2014/15.

The 18-year-old left-back didn't feature for Everton until three months into the campaign due to injury but his performances later earned a run in the Under-21 side.

And while Robinson admits being sidelined in the summer was disappointing, getting the vote from his teammates at the Annual Academy Awards made it all worthwhile.

"I've never won a Players' Player award before," he told evertontv. "I think I've had a good season so it's nice to know it's been appreciated.

"I was quite unlucky to miss pre-season in Austria being ill, before missing the tournament in South Africa because I fractured my knee and I didn't really get back until November. 

"Luckily I managed to get back in the team, played well at the Dallas Cup and then David Unsworth brought me into the Under-21s towards the end of the season.

"Overall, it's been a good year after a frustrating start so it's great to have my efforts recognised."
