Macca At The Double

Midfielder praises team-mates.

Double winner Kevin McDonald has heaped praise on his team-mates after scooping two of the main awards at the End of Season Dinner on Wednesday evening.

The Scot won the Player of the Year award along with the Players Player of the Year vote and judging by the audience’s reaction at the Telford International Centre, the awards were well deserved. 

Speaking at the end of the evening Kevin said: “It’s been a great season individually for me and collectively as well – it’s been fantastic.

“These two awards are an added bonus but at the end of the day I am here to play for a team and do a job and we have done that job this season.

“It has been an amazing achievement from everyone this season and for me it’s brilliant to play in such a good team.

“It’s a team thing because if it wasn’t for these boys would I have got these awards? No.  I pay my respects to all my team-mates who have been fantastic to play alongside from the day I walked into the club until now.

“I can only thank the boys and the coaching staff for what I have achieved.

“The fans have been amazing through a tough year and we all appreciate that support. I appreciate all of those fans who have voted for me.

“And then to get an award from your fellow team-mates as well is amazing, especially in my first season.

“I can’t really explain how much it means to me.”

Did the midfielder expect such an eventful campaign when he joined Wolves from Sheffield United back in August?

He says: “We set out to get promoted this season, as the gaffer said at the start. We broke records along the way and it has been such an achievement.

“It has been a great effort from everyone at the club and a great season. Have we all more to come?  Let’s hope so!

“We’ve done well and I’ve picked up a bit myself this season but now I’m just looking forward to the Championship as much as everyone else.

“Hopefully we can go out and give our all again and see where it takes us.

“Inside the club the gaffer knows what he wants from us and what we can achieve.

“Everyone knows it’s a hard league and the fans realise that.

“It’s going to be tough but it’s nothing to be frightened of and we will go out there and give 100 per cent as we have done this season.”
