Skipper picks up a treble...

Club captain Ross McCormack picked up a well earned hat-trick at the club’s Player Of The Year Awards dinner on Saturday evening.

The Scot was named Fans Player Of The Year, Players Player Of The Year, and he also won the Goal Of The Season Award.

Ross collected 76% of the voting for the Fans Player Of The Year Award, ahead of Jason Pearce (19%) and Alex Mowatt (5%).

The Goal Of The Season Award was more keenly contested with 57% of the votes going to Ross for his goal against Sheffield Wednesday at Elland Road back in August.

Rudy Austin collected 33% of the votes for his goal against Reading at Elland Road, and Matt Smith came third, with 10% of the votes, for his second goal in the 4-0 demolition of Birmingham City in October.

The Young Player Of The Year Award went to Alex Mowatt, whose debut season saw him make 28 appearances and score one goal, against Huddersfield Town at Elland Road.

Matt Smith also collected two awards on the night. Matt won The Community Player Of The Year Award and he also won the Fastest Goal Of The Season Award, sponsored by Ebel, for his goal at Huddersfield in October.

New club president Massimo Cellino spoke with the audience ahead of the event, and he later made a special guest appearance on stage, alongside Leeds band the Pigeon Detectives.

The evening was hosted by BBC presenter, and huge Leeds United fan, Mike Bushell.
