Star Man Luke

Posted on: Sat 30 Apr 2011
Luke Chambers will today be crowned Nottingham Forest's official Player of the Year.

The 25 year old central defender was the clear winner of a supporters' poll, beating last season's winner Lee Camp into second place and Lewis McGugan into third.

Chambers will be presented with his award by manager Billy Davies before the kick-off of this afternoon's home game against Scunthorpe.

And he admits: "I won the Young Player of the Year award at Northampton but to win the senior award at a club like Forest is one of the biggest things in my career, especially when you look at the people who have won it in the past.

"I'm delighted. It means a lot to my family, especially my dad who travels all over the country to watch me. He's over the moon."

Chambers found himself in the shadows last season, making just 17 Championship starts as Forest progressed to the play-offs.

But he has re-established himself as a key member of Davies' starting line-up this term, starting all but three of the club's league games.

Meanwhile, central defender Jamaal Lascelles has been named Academy Player of the Year, while Danny Meadows is the first winner of the Apprentice of the Year award which has been introduced this year.

The Apprentice of the Year award is presented in memory of Daryl Buckland, a Forest supporter who sadly passed away in 2008 at the age of 36.
