Clean sweep of awards for Reece Burke

reeceawardWest Ham loanee, Reece Burke picked up six awards tonight at the annual Bradford Players Awards in the McCall and Hendrie Suites at Bradford’s Valley Parade Stadium.

19 year old Hammer, Burke was awarded with the Supporters’ Trust Young Player of the year before scooping the Telegraph & Argus Most consistent Player of the Year award, The Shipley Bantams Player of the Year award, The White Abbey Supporters’ Branch Player of the Year award and the East Bierley Bantams Player of the Year award  before crowning off the evening by picking the main award of the evening which is equivalent of Hammer of the year award for the Bantums. It goes by the less catchy title ‘Telegraph & Argus/JCT600 Player of the Year’ award.

Reece gave a special mention of thanks to his family and his dad, John, who gets to most games despite living over 3 hours  from Bradford.

  1. Always good to see a young Iron doing so well. He looked promising before he left so will be interesting to see him again after making so much progress. I hope he’s fit enough to feature in the playoffs for Bradford, he’s certainly earned it.

  2. Definitely looked very promising, if Bradford do go up via the play offs will be interesting to see how he does in the championship.

  3. Be good to see how he does next to Ogboona in the friendlies before we send him anywhere,
    Last year BFS used him and in all but 1 game he was as good as any defender we had,now he is over a year older,got a season behind him and is ready to replace some of our miss fireing central defenders,
    Let’s give him some time before we farm him out,
    Henry as well

    • If we qualify for Europa League, would be good to keep hold of him for the pre season matches. I think the Europa could be a great prospect for a few of the younger likes like Josh Cullen, Parfitt-Williams, Oxford and Samuelson. Get them first team game time then a half season in the championship and see how their form is.
      The future is bright for the first time in years, hopefully we can continue to build on the impressive youths coming through and integrate them properly.
