Dom Telford thanked Gazette readers after being voted as your Blackpool Young Player of the Year.
The 18-year-old burst into the first team just after Christmas, firing a goal on his home debut against Rotherham.
And after more than 1,000 votes by readers, Telford beat off competition from fellow youth team graduate Henry Cameron to pick up the prize.
“I’m like to say a big thank you to all The Gazette’s readers for their votes, it means a lot,” said Telford.
“It’s been a season to remember for me even though things haven’t gone well for the team.”
