Jordan Ayew wins three awards at Crystal Palace end of the season awards ceremony


Ghana and Crystal Palace striker, Jordan Ayew, has scooped three awards at the Crystal Palace end of the season awards.

The 28-year-old’s stellar campaign for the Eagles has been rewarded at the club’s end of the season awards ceremony by being voted Player of the Season, Players’ Player of the Season and Goal of the Season.

Jordan, who netted nine times this season and played in 39 games across all competitions, received an impressive 37% of the total votes from almost 6,000 supporters.

He saw off competition from goalkeeper, Vicente Guaita (28.2%), and defender, Gary Cahill (16.7%) to scoop the Player of the season accolade.

The ex-Swansea man also earned the recognition of his teammates by being voted the Player’s Player of the Year and the trophy presented by captain Luka Milivojevic.

Jordan Ayew’s last-minute winner against West Ham United at Selhurst Park was also named Crystal Palace’s Goal of the Season.

The Boxing Day strike came in the 90th-minute against the Hammers, securing Palace three points in emphatic fashion.

He secured the Goal of the Season accolade as voted for by fans, and secured the trophy with a landslide victory; collecting 70.1% of the votes to beat Wilfried Zaha v Chelsea (H) and his own effort against Aston Villa at home by some distance.

The 2019/20 season was Jordan’s best ever season by far that saw him make a strong statement at the London club by becoming their highest scoring in the 2019/20 season and becoming the highest scoring Ghanaian in the EPL with 25 goals.
