thetwounfortunates at related • 0 views
[I]t was a close-call, but Danny Ings pipped fellow Claret Kieran Trippier to this year's YP gong. The Wintonian was simply irrepressible and – to Burnley supporters' joy – managed to return from the sidelines just as his strike partner Sam Vokes had hobbled off with a season-ending injury. Trippier, who once again claimed the right-back spot in the divisional PFA team of the year, can however be considered unlucky not to have made the award his own; a great career surely lies ahead for the former Manchester City youth-teamer.
