Shane Flynn has been named Leicester City's Development Squad player of the season. 

The 19-year old Dubliner left Bray Wanderers for the Foxes in May 2017, having broken into the Bray first team as a 16-year old.

Flynn has flirted with the Leicester first team this season, and was included on the bench for three of their Europa League games. He was also among the substitutes for Leicester's 2-1 win at Brighton in March.

He's been a near ever-present for his club in Premier League 2, alternating between left-back and centre-back.

The man who scored Leicester's winning goal in the FA Cup final - Youri Tielemans - has been named the club's Players' Player of the Season, and Supporters’ Player of the Season.

While last summer's signing from Saint-Etienne - Wesley Fofana - was named Leicester's Young Player of the Year.

"To win awards and individual awards are a reflection of your season," Tielemans said, "It means that I’ve done well this season, and I’m really happy with it, so yes – I’m really grateful for the people voting for me.

“I hope I’ve helped them enjoy it even though the season was very strange and we didn’t have the fans with us inside the stadiums. I hope I’ve played well, and winning these awards mean a lot to me.

“When I came here, I knew that we had a really good team and a good group of players. I think this season, winning the FA Cup means a lot to us. It means that we’ve done well. We’ve worked really hard since we’ve been together and hopefully, we can carry on in that manner.”
