WES IN L1 TEAM OF THE SEASON

24 April 2022

"Although it won’t end in the way we would’ve liked it to have done, I’ve loved my first year at the Club and I’m very grateful to be recognised in this way"

Wes Burns has been named in the Sky Bet League One Team of the Season for 2021/22. 

The Welshman was named alongside 10 of his colleagues at this evening’s EFL Awards. 

The wing-back has made 36 appearances in League One this term, with a further three coming in cup competitions. 

In that period, he has netted 11 goals, with one of those coming in the FA Cup back in November. 

Having scored his first goal for Town in the 2-2 home draw with AFC Wimbledon in August, perhaps his most notable moments were scoring in the 4-0 wins at Portsmouth and Gillingham, as well as the 4-1 victory at Wycombe.

He also secured all three points with a match-winning brace at AFC Wimbledon in January.

Alongside his goalscoring exploits, the 27-year-old’s contribution in both defence and attack has seen him become a fans’ favourite in what is his debut campaign at Portman Road. 

Wes said: "I’m delighted to be named in the League One Team of the Season.

"Although it won’t end in the way we would’ve liked it to have done, I’ve loved my first year at the Club and I’m very grateful to be recognised in this way.

"I’m already looking forward to building on this season both individually and as a squad to make sure that next year is a successful one for the Club."
