Everton Award Winners Revealed

Jordan Pickford and Alex Iwobi claimed the top accolades of Everton Men's End of Season Awards following influential individual campaigns.

Pickford collected a second successive Player of the Season prize, while Iwobi came out on top with his teammates for the Players' Player of the Season award.

Seamus Coleman's match-winning strike against Leeds United topped the Club's hotly-contested Goal of the Season vote.

Meanwhile, Nathalie Björn was named Everton Women's Players' Player of the Season and Jess Park was crowned the Women's Young Player of the Season by coaching staff.

Pickford's vital contributions across the term were once again recognised by supporters, with the England No.1 garnering 42.3 per cent of the overall vote to scoop his third Player of the Season award, having first being bestowed the honour in 2017/18.

The goalkeeper, who was earlier this week shortlisted for the Premier League's Save of the Season and Game Changer awards for his stand-out performance in the Merseyside derby at Goodison in September, once again shone for Club and country in 2022/23.

Pickford made 124 saves in the Premier League in total (third-highest) and regularly captained the Toffees in the absence of teammate Coleman.

Iwobi continued his impressive form from the previous season and topped the Players' Player vote after playing a crucial role in several different positions, as well as providing a Club-high of eight assists.

Elsewhere, McNeil convincingly won Everton's Young Player of the Season with 72.5 per cent of the fan poll following an impressive maiden season in royal blue.

Signed from Burnley last summer, McNeil became a key figure under Sean Dyche - who handed the winger his Premier League debut during their time together at Turf Moore - during the second half of the season.

No Everton player managed to register more than McNeil's 10 goal involvements (seven goals, three assists).

The Blues' Goal of the Season award was another prize decided by Evertonians, with contenders from the Men's, Women's and Under-21s sides shortlisted.

Everton captain Coleman came out on top with 28.8 per cent of the vote for his superb goal in the 1-0 victory over Leeds United in February, edging teammate Michael Keane's wonder strike against Tottenham Hotspur (26.8 per cent) in second and Demarai Gray's stunning equaliser at Manchester City (24.1 per cent) in third.

For the Women's awards, Sweden international Björn was hailed by manager Brian Sorensen for an outstanding season as she collected the Women's Players' Player of the Season.

“I’m very honoured to receive this award, especially as it was decided by teammates,” Björn told

“It’s a big honour to be part of this group and train alongside them every day.

“To win this award shows that what you’re doing in training, how you are as a person on and off the pitch means something. 

“This year I have been stronger in myself, both physically and mentally. As a result, I have been able to play a lot more games this season. 

Colleague Park, who enjoyed a superb season on loan from Manchester City that earned her a senior England debut, also spoke of her honour at being recognised for her efforts as she picked up the Young Player of the Season.

“I feel incredibly honoured to accept this award,” said Park, who notched five goals and five assists during 2022/23.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Everton and made memories I will never forget.

“The fans welcomed me from day one and they will always hold a special place in my heart.

“Thank you to Club, Brian, his staff and this fantastic group of players for the opportunity they have given me this season.”

Finally, Stanley Mills was selected as the Under-21s' Player of the Season by Head Coach Paul Tait and his coaching staff after an excellent term with the young Blues.
