Sander Berge was the main winner at Burnley’s post-season awards ceremony.

The Norwegian received both the club’s and the players’ player of the season awards at Burnley FC’s In The Community Charity Dinner on Saturday night.

Clarets fans voted online for the player of the season award, while Berge’s teammates decided the player of the year.

The 26-year-old has had a successful debut season with the Clarets after joining from Sheffield United in the summer, appearing in 38 games across all competitions.

Berge remarked upon winning the honors, “This means a lot to me.” Burnley is an excellent football team.

“I love coming into work every single day and being part of such a special club with so many great people. They’re a fantastic group to be part of.”

Berge added: “The support [from the fans] has been amazing. It’s been special for me.

“The fans have been fantastic. For them to be there week in and week out and cheer for us, that’s what we do it for. We’re so thankful for them.”

Kirstie Levell, meanwhile, swept the trophies for Burnley’s women’s team.

Playing 21 games this season, the goalkeeper has delivered a series of eye-catching performances, helping Rebecca Sawiuk’s side concede the second fewest goals in the National League North.

“I’m really happy and really appreciative for these awards,” she said. “This is for everyone who believed in me and brought me to the club.

“The belief the club have put in me has taken me through the season and helped me perform at my highest level.”
