Guzan the big winner at end-of-season awards dinner

Brad Guzan was the big winner at Villa end-of-season awards dinner - scooping the Players' Player and Supporters' Player of the Year prizes.

Guzan earned top recognition from his team-mates as well as the claret and blue faithful, picking up the two main awards at the glittering ceremony in the Holte Suite.

Meanwhile, top goalscorer Christian Benteke collected Players' Young Player of the Year, with Andreas Weimann winning the Supporters' Young Player of the Year vote.

Matt Lowton's wonder-strike against Stoke City was the unanimous choice for Goal of the Season.

There was also a special award for Villa's U19 side who were crowned champions of Europe by winning the NextGen Series last month.

Guzan pipped Andreas Weimann to the Terrace Trophy for Supporters' Player of the Year after winning six man-of-the-match votes this season.

The American goalkeeper also finished runner-up in man-of-the-match polls on five occasions.

Weimann edged the Supporters' Young Player poll with 51% of the votes, ahead of Benteke in second with 44% and Nathan Baker in third with 3%.

Lowton's stunning volley against Stoke received 83% of the votes for Goal of the Season, ahead of Weimann's strike in the win at Liverpool [10%] and the Austrian's goal against Manchester United [2%].
