COLEMAN NAMED EVERTON YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR

first_imgKILLYBEGS soccer star Seamus Coleman is celebrating today after being named Everton’s young player of the year.The 22-year-old Donegal man will make an incredible 40th appearance of the season when his side entertain Chelsea at Goodison Park on Sunday.He has started 30 of those games – and scored six goals for his club. And last night in Liverpool, Seamus picked up two gongs – young player of the year – and shareholders’ player of the year.Manager David Moyes said “Seamus did tremendously well at Blackpool last season and he’s given us something fresh and new this year.“He’s been great and, with what we’ve seen, we hope he’ll be able to step up again.”The former St Catherine’s and Sligo Rovers player won’t end his season against Chelsea however. He is expected to feature for Ireland when they play the North in the Carling Nations Cup next Tuesday – and Scotland on Sunday week.Said Seamus after the ceremony: “I’m trying to pick up different things but I don’t want to lose that natural ability.“I just like being able to get it and go. It’s done me well so far, so hopefully that can continue to be the case. I haven’t had a whole load of coaching. I just go for it. I want to get past my full-back. If I don’t do it the first time, I’ll keep trying.“It’s still there a little bit, that feeling that it’s all a bit surreal. I’ve said to myself that I’ve got to get rid of that because you can’t always think that way. At the same time, I don’t want to get used to it. I still want to have that little feeling of being in awe because you can never take your place for granted.”COLEMAN NAMED EVERTON YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR was last modified: May 20th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:evertonKillybegsseamus colemanlast_img read more
