Andy Todd has capped off a wonderful debut season in the Hyundai A-League winning Perth Glory-s Most Glorious Player award at the Burswood Grand Ballroom.
In front of more than 650 guests, the star defender polled 34 votes to run away with the count from captain Jacob Burns (23 votes) and Naum Sekulovski (13).
Todd picked up votes in 16 games and received the maximum 3 votes six times.
“I-d just like to thank all my team mates and everyone connected to the club, all the lads have made me feel really welcome,” Todd said in a pre-recorded interview.
Unfortunately back in England for a short holiday with his family, Todd said he was wrapt with his first season in Australia.
“I just wanted to come here and enjoy myself and to try and help the players reach bigger and better things.
“I-ll be back next season and hopefully we can go one or two steps better.”
In a stellar season for the 35 year old, Todd was also crowned:
Volunteers- player of the year
Supporters- player of the year and
QBE players, player of the year.
“It-s a great honour for me and I-m very privileged to receive these awards, I-m very humbled by it all.”
Despite the four individual awards, Todd said he was still hurting from the Glory-s dramatic penalty shoot-out loss to Wellington.
“I think we slightly underachieved with the squad we-ve got.
“You look at our team and we have a decent team on paper.
“I think next season we will look to go a lot better than this season for sure,” he said.
Defender Naum Sekulovski won Best Clubman while Mile Sterjovski was awarded the Golden Boot.
In the Youth team, Dean Evans capped off an impressive season, named the Most Glorious Youth player.
