Christophe delighted to be recognised by the supporters in his first season at Portman Road

Christophe Berra has thanked the Blue Army for voting him as their Player of the Year- and hopes to repay them by helping Town into the Premier League.

The Scotland international, a free transfer signing in the summer, has consistently performed at the heart of the defence and was duly named as both the Supporters’ Player of the Year and the Junior Blues Player of the Year.

“It was a great honour to be recognised by the supporters and win the awards,” Town’s number six told the Club website.

“I think the last Player of the Year award I would have won would probably have been during my time at Hearts, so to come here and win a couple of awards in my first season is very special to me.

“To be recognised by the fans is very nice too and it’s good to know that they think highly of my performances.

“There are a lot of talented players in our squad who could have won the awards themselves, so I feel honoured and I’d like to thank all the supporters who voted for me.

“We’ve got a huge weekend of football now and we’re at the business end of the season. We’re still fighting hard for a Play-Off place and it would mean the world to all the lads if we could go all the way. You never know in this League.”
