The awards for Chris Weale were in recognition for the excellent season that he’s had between the sticks for Town. After a slow start he’s improved game by game and put in numerous match winning performances that have helped to cement Town’s League 1 status:”I’m very privileged and it’s very nice to get two awards this evening.
“It’s not my motivation to get personal awards but it is always a great honour to get awards from your fellow players and from the fans.
“It has been a good season for me, this time last year I was sat at the Leicester awards on crutches watching Kasper Schmeichel get all the awards that evening. I was recovering from a serious knee injury unsure if I would ever play again, all you have to do is believe in yourself. Shrewsbury took the chance on me and I must thank the Gaffer, Skitty and Gavin for taking the chance on me.”
