CAPTAIN James Ward-Prowse picked up two of the biggest prizes from the Saints' 2020-21 player awards.

Ward-Prowse was voted both fans' player and players' player of the season after a remarkable spell of consistency, playing every minute for the club throughout the campaign.

Other winners from the men's first team included Stuart Armstrong, the Scot collecting Terry Paine's president's choice award.

The former Celtic man impressed in various roles for Saints last season, scoring five goals and providing six assists.

Ward-Prowse narrowly missed out on making it a hat-trick of awards, pipped to the goal of the season trophy by Danny Ings.

The striker's smart lob against Liverpool in January edged out Ward-Prowse's free-kick at Newcastle and Che Adams's volley in the win over Sheffield United.

Nathan Tella was rewarded for his fine breakthrough campaign, collecting the young player of the season award.

The 21-year-old featured 22 times for the first team, scoring his first senior goal in the 3-1 win over Fulham in May.

The academy scholar of the year prize went to Will Tizzard.

On the women's side, Ella Pusey was voted fans' player of the season.

Pusey scored 13 goals in 12 games for Marieanne Spacey-Cale's side, becoming the club's record scorer in the process.

Goalkeeper Kayla Rendell was voted players' player of the season, while fellow keeper Sara Luce took the 'Southampton Way' prize, for her contributions both on and off the pitch.

Rachel Panting's long-range strike against Lewes was voted goal of the season, while youngster Megan Collett won the Girls' Regional Talent Club award.
