Foxes defender Jack Hobbs has picked up a prestigious double at the Leicester City Player of the Year Awards evening.

Hobbs, 21, won the Player of the Year award, voted for by the club's supporters, and shared the Player's Player award with Welsh international midfielder Andy King.

Former Liverpool centre back Hobbs has been in fantastic form for City this year alongside Wayne Brown at the heart of the Foxes' defence and has only missed two league games this term.

Hobbs shares the Player's Player of the Year award with Andy King who has netted ten goals from midfield in his debut season in the Championship.


King, who is a product of the club's thriving academy system, has already made over 100 appearances for the Foxes and has also been capped four times by Wales.

The 21 year old scored the winning goal against Preston on Saturday, to help City secure their place in the Championship play-offs.

City's joint top scorer, Martyn Waghorn, has won the Young Player of the Award after an impressive season since signing on loan from Sunderland in the summer.

Waghorn, 20, has scored twelve goals for the Foxes, including notable strikes against QPR and Coventry City.

Paul Gallagher was the night's other big winner as he claimed the Goal of the Season award for his free kick against Nottingham Forest in the 3-0 win at the Walkers Stadium.

After an incredible season for John Rudkin's Academy side, which has seen them go unbeaten throughout their league campaign and secure the Group B title with a game to spare, Elliott Chamberlain was named as the Academy Player of the Season.

Chamberlain, who signed his first professional contract at the end of 2009, has moved from midfield to up-front and has formed a cracking partnership with fellow nominee Adi Yussuf. Chamberlain has also made his debut for the Welsh Under-21 side despite being just 17.
