‘Give that man a contract ASAP’ – Sunderland fans react as Jon McLaughlin wins Player of the Year

Jon McLaughlin beat Luke O’Nien and Aiden McGeady to the top award.

Sunderland goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin has been recognised for his tremendous efforts this season. As announced by the club’s official Twitter account, McLaughlin has won the Player of the Year accolade.

The Player of the Year is calculated via accumulative votes over the course of the season. McLaughlin has been consistent throughout the campaign and this has been reflected in the end of season result.

McLaughlin joined Jack Ross’ men on a free transfer last summer after leaving Hearts. The 31-year-old has been impressive in League One, helping the Black Cats finish in the play-off zone.

In the play-off semi-final, he kept a clean sheet in both the home and away leg to ensure Sunderland sneaked a 1-0 win over Portsmouth and earned a Wembley date.

But it ultimately ended in heartbreak for the second time this season. McLaughlin can hold his head high despite Sunderland’s failure to win promotion.

The Scotland international has won the club’s Player of the Year award to prove how important he has been. He pips Aiden McGeady (second) and Luke O’Nien (third) to the accolade.

Here are some tweets from Sunderland fans discussing this.
