Soon after the 2018-19 season ended we asked all you readers to vote for the Everton players you thought had good seasons in a number of categories. That poll has now closed, and we are happy to present the results to you here.

Everton Player of the Year

There were some very strong contenders in this category with Lucas Digne and Idrissa Gueye having very strong seasons. Also in the running were Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, with defenders Michael Keane and Kurt Zouma rounding out the field.

The readers agreed with both the club and the players in naming Lucas Digne the Player of the Season. The Frenchman nabbed that title at the Dixies too, as well as sharing the Players’ Player of the Season trophy with Gueye.

Young Player of the Year

There is a young core of players in the senior team which bodes well for the future, and once again the readers were in sync with the Dixies again, with Richarlison coming out well ahead of the group.

Ladies Player of the Year

The Ladies team endured a tough season, and face a bit of an uncertain summer as well, but there were some positive moments to celebrate. The readers here broke with the Club in the voting, handing the award to Gabby George just ahead of Inessa Kaagman. The Dixie was given to Simone Magill, who finished in third in our voting here.

Youth (U18 & U23) Player of the Year

We expected this to be a close battle with so many strong candidates in the youth squads. The Dixie went to Nathan Broadhead, but the forward didn’t quite make our shortlist on RBM, and while it was tight between Under-23 captain Morgan Feeney and Under-18 freescoring striker Ellis Simms, goalkeeper Joao Virginia finished well-ahead of the pack!

Most Improved Player

The last award is one that is always open to interpretation, not least because there’s no equivalent for it at the Dixies. However, Michael Keane edged ahead of Dominic Calvert-Lewin in this category, and also won the Chairman’s Blueblood Dixie, which could probably be considered a comparable award.
