Perkins voted 2015-16 Players’ Player of the Season.
- David Perkins wins 2015-16 Players’ Player of the Season.
- 33-year-old midfielder chosen for award by team mates.
- Perkins claims second award of the evening after being named Away Player of the Season.
The award was close fought this season with both Perkins and Max Power popular choices amongst their fellow professionals, with the 33-year-old narrowly edging the decision.
Perkins has been an almost ever-present in the team this season, missing just one of Latics’ 45 Sky Bet League One fixtures so far on the way to promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship.
Fellow award contender Power himself voted for his midfielder partner, saying:
“Perks has been an example to us all, he’s had a top season and his fitness levels are through the roof. He’s been a major part in what we’ve achieved this season and deserves to win this award.”
Upon receiving the award, Perkins said:
“Getting recognition from my team mates really means a lot, especially when we’ve all worked so hard together to achieve promotion this season.
“This season has been perfect for me in midfield with Max and then with Sam (Morsy) coming in during the season. Collectively we’ve clicked and it’s made every game enjoyable to be a part of.”
