Ipswich Town captain David Norris has been voted the Players’ Player of the Year by his team-mates at the club’s annual end of season dinner.

Norris has been Town’s top scorer for most of the season having amassed 11 in all competitions, as well as consistently putting in tireless displays in the midfield. The 30-year-old won the award by just one vote ahead of defender Gareth McAuley.

Skipper Norris was recently voted joint-third by Vital Ipswich readers in our poll for Player Of The Season. That was won by McAuley who was also named the Away Match Passport Holders’ Player Of The Year at the Supporters Club Player Awards ceremony over the weekend, where Jimmy Bullard picked up the Supporters’ Player Of The Year award.

Clearly the trio of Norris, McAuley and Bullard have been influential for Town this season, but worryingly for Blues fans, the club could be without all three players heading into next season. Negotiations do not appear to have progressed with Norris’ agent with his contract set to expire in the summer, whilst reported Rangers target McAuley is still yet to confirm his deal despite agreeing terms with the club. Meanwhile manager Paul Jewell has said that he will soon begin talks with Hull City with a view to completing what he described as a ‘very, very difficult deal’ for on-loan midfielder Bullard, who is currently set to return to the KC Stadium at the end of the season.
