Crysencio Summerville was awarded Championship Player of the Season at the EFL Awards 2024, held in London.

With 17 goals and eight assists for Leeds United this season, the Dutch winger outscored Blackburn’s Sammie Szmodics and Leicester’s Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to win the league title.

‘It’s good to win. I believe I’ve progressed significantly this season. It was the finest decision for me to continue at Leeds, and I sincerely hope we get promoted,’ added Summerville.

Archie Gray, the 22-year-old’s teammate, won the Young Player of the Season title, but Kieran McKenna of Ipswich Town was voted Manager of the Season, beating out Leeds manager Daniel Farke and Hull City’s Liam Rosenior.

The Tractor Boys are now leading the Championship with three games remaining, and McKenna stated that it was a proud occasion for both himself and Ipswich.

‘It’s a source of tremendous satisfaction for myself, my family, and the entire football club because manager of the year represents a team that’s done phenomenally well, and of course, a team performing fantastically well is the result of a lot of people’s hard work,’ said McKenna, whose team won’t play again until April 27.

‘We’re on 89 points with three games remaining, but the quality this season has been so good that we realize we need to win as many points as possible,’ he continued.

Gray, who turned 18 last month, received the Young Player award from Chris Kamara following a breakout season in which he appeared in all but two of Leeds’ Championship games.

To play as many games as I have at this age, I’ve been extremely fortunate with my manager and teammates,’ he explained. ‘Daniel Farke simply trusted me and taught me simple things like positioning, especially in a new position at the start of the season, right-back. “I’m really grateful to him,” Gray continued.

A week after winning the Bristol Street Motors Trophy Final with a brace, Harrison Burrows of Peterborough was voted League One’s Player of the Season. Ronnie Edwards, 21, his teammate, was awarded Young Player of the Season. John Mousinho of Portsmouth accepted the manager’s award; if his team draws with Barnsley on Tuesday, they will advance.
