Awards: As They Happened
Who will win the coveted Player of the Season prize?
Below is a full transcript of the live text commentary from Monday night's Everton End Of Season Awards Dinner.
00:26: Look out on evertonfc.com and evertonTV for all the fallout from the awards from Tuesday morning.
00:25: Well, I can't think of a better way to bring the night to a close than that. It took a while in coming but I hope you're pleased with the outcomes. So many players could have taken the top awards tonight but I think you, the fans, the panels and the players got it right. Good job all round. And thanks for your comments and emails.
00:23: Phil Jagielka: "Thanks to everyone for their comments. It really means a lot. I really appreciate it and I promise to make you proud again next season."
00:22: Phil Jagielka has just popped his head in and he's reading some of your messages. No word of a lie.
00:20: "Made up to see Jags win the Player of the Season! Gutted he can't be on the pitch at Wembley. He really deserves it!" Aaron
00:19: "Congratulations to Jags and Fellaini. They both have been great this season. Jags is our rock." George Simonds
00:17: "Congratulations big Dan on winning Goal of the Season. It meant so much to all us Everton fans." Mike
00:15: The crowd rises to their feet. Among so many candidates, there was always one man who stood out above the rest. Barely has he put a foot wrong all season long; he also scored the penalty which took us to the final. That he won't be there somehow makes this award all the more special. Phil Jagielka is Everton's Player of the Year.
00:11: And the winner is...
00:10: We're there. The climax. The pièce de résistance. The Everton Player of the Year as voted by users of evertonfc.com...
00:08: Dan Gosling: "People were stopping me in the street the day after the game. I know ITV missed the goal but I think most people have seen it now." Too right. On repeat. Over and over again.
00:07: Those of you in the south will remember that TicTac advert forever. It had to be. Dan Gosling's dramatic derby winner in the FA Cup takes the award.
00:06: Okay, Goal of the Season...
00:05: "Well done Jags, a fully deserved award." Mike, Norris Green
00:03: Maybe he's had a glass of champagne too many but Fellaini finally agreed to do an evertonTV interview in English! Look out for that one tomorrow.
00:02: If you're still with us, don't forget to email email@example.com with your comments.
00:00: As I wearily type four consecutive zeros and a new day begins, I realise this has been well worth the wait. I felt compelled to down tools to applaud Phil Jagielka and in the meantime Maraoune Fellaini has been named Young Player of the Year. He took to the stage and, in broken English, managed: "I hope we win the Cup." Top man.
11.56: Phil Jagielka: "I have good days and bad days but I've got great people around me - my friends, family and team-mates. Hopefully the boys can do it [win the FA Cup] this year and I'll be back next year and we can do it again."
11:55: Phil Jagielka!
11:54: Here comes one of the top gongs - The Players' Player of the Year. To the players, this one will perhaps mean the most - being recognised by your peers as the outstanding performer. And the winner is...
11:52: After all that waiting, I'm now struggling to keep up. The 1984 FA Cup winning team has won the Howard Kendall Award. Derek Mountfield, Kevin Richardson and Graeme Sharp went up to collect it to rapturous applause.
11:51: "Boy the suspense is killing me. Feels like extra time and penalties all over again!" Johnny
11:48: Kieran Agard: "I was made up to be on the first-team bench this season. My aim for next year is to make a first-team appearance." Best of luck to you, Kieran. I'm sure you all agree?
11:47: Kieran Agard takes the award!
11:46: Next up is the Reserve Player of the Year. A few contenders from a young team which did superbly under Andy Holden and Alan Stubbs this year....
11:44: "Top stuff and perfect timing - just back from the chippy!" Rory Buchanan. Not James McCarten.
11:43: James McCarten: "It's been great working with Taff [Andy Holden] and Alan Stubbs. They were both centre backs and I'm learning a lot from them."
11:42: James McCarten. No real surprise considering he scooped the same award at last week's Academy awards. Could he follow the likes of Rodwell and Gosling into the first-team next season?
11.41: I told you they'd come thick and fast eventually. The next award is the Academy Player of the Year...
11:40: Fara Williams: "It's great for me but the whole team deserves it." How modest? Well done, Fara.
11:38: Everton Ladies Player of the Year is Fara Williams!
11:36: Now, it's the turn of Everton Ladies. How well did they do this year?
11:35: Jack Rodwell: "I'm delighted to win the award. There are some fantastic names on this trophy - Michael Ball, Francis Jeffers, loads - it's a real honour."
11:34: Jack Rodwell!
11:33: Next up is the Shareholders' Young Player of the Year award. And the winner is...
