Whitney Delighted to See Sawyers Up for Player of the Year

Walsall's Interim Head Coach Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of today's League 1 clash with Southend United, and has discussed Romaine Sawyers' nomination for 'Player of the Season', insisting that if Rom does win the award it will be because of the club as a whole.
Walsall's Interim Head Coach Jon Whitney has spoken to the local press ahead of today's League 1 clash with Southend United, and has discussed Romaine Sawyers' nomination for 'Player of the Season', insisting that if Rom does win the award it will be because of the club as a whole.

Speaking via the Express & Star, Jon said; “I was delighted and not surprised to see Rom nominated. When I voted I wasn’t allowed to pick him but if I could I would have had him first, second and third. Whether he wins or not, it is great to get accolades like that.

“He deserves it because he does it for the team. I’m sure he will tell you his team-mates have set him up for this award. It’s his individual ability that is being recognised. But we enable him to have that role.

“For me all the players are equally important but if he does go on and win it he will take it for the team. It’s a team effort. Hopefully Rom will win and he will accept it for everyone from Tom the kitman to Mandy the chef and all the administration staff. We accept any awards here as a group because that is our philosophy.”
