Toby and Dele scoop Supporters Clubs awards
07 May 2016|Tottenham Hotspur
Toby Alderweireld and Dele Alli took the honours at the annual Supporters Clubs awards day at Hotspur Way on Saturday.
Central defender Toby was named Player of the Season while Dele's wonder strike at Crystal Palace in January was voted Goal of the Season.
Clubs representing the global Spurs family travelled to the training centre and watched the lads being put through their paces in their final session ahead of tomorrow's Premier League clash against Southampton at the Lane.
They also got to meet Mauricio Pochettino, who shook every supporter by the hand as they stood pitchside.
Ever-present in the Premier League, Toby's influence is there for all to see in a defence that remains the tightest in the Premier League with 28 goals conceded in 36 matches.
"It’s a wonderful feeling," said Toby. "It’s always nice to have something like this, especially for a defender as it’s more difficult to win!
"I’m honoured but it should or could have been another 15 players who deserved it as well but I’m very happy with it and very proud.
"It’s not so much about a player of the season this year, it’s about the team of the season because everyone has been on their game and everyone playing at such a high level.
"A lot of players deserve this award."
Toby was also delighted to meet supporters from all corners of the globe.
"It’s unbelievable to see so many supporters’ clubs here," he added.
"To see fans from all around the world and every part of the globe following Spurs is incredible. The fact that they voted for me is an incredible feeling.
"It’s difficult to describe - there are no words for it."
