Ricardo Santos has completed a clean sweep of awards after being named Fans' and Players' Player of the Year, respectively.

Santos, who was recently presented with the Burnden Aces trophy after taking 57% of votes in our Player of the Year poll, claimed 52% of those cast in Bolton's official alternative.

The 25-year-old saw off competition from Matt Gilks, who finished as runner-up, and third-placed Eoin Doyle to take the Fans' award, while his peers were in agreement with supporters as Santos made it a double.

Upon announcement of his awards, Santos took to social media to thank Wanderers' supporters for their backing, whilst also expressing his gratitude to his fellow players by saying: "Honoured to win Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season.

"I'm humbled and grateful. Can't wait to go again next season in front of our fans.

"Love Rico."

George Thomason was rewarded for completing his first full campaign as a professional by claiming the Young Player of the Year award, while Harry Brockbank was presented with the PFA Community Player of the Year trophy for his efforts in supporting the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust as their Mental Health Ambassador.

Eoin Doyle's 19 goals for the season meant he took the Golden Boot, with Antoni Sarcevic scooping the Goal of the Season honour for his superb solo strike in the final-day victory at Crawley Town.
