2021 EFL Awards winners announced

29 April 2021

The winners of the 2021 EFL Awards have been revealed as the continued efforts and achievements of Clubs, players and individuals were recognised live on Sky Sports this evening.

Norwich City’s Emi Buendia claimed the honour of the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Season award after his all-round contribution helped the Canaries gain promotion back to the Premier League. Buendia’s 30 goal contributions, including a division-high 16 assists earned him the accolade ahead of team-mate Teemu Pukki, and Brentford’s Ivan Toney.

Peterborough United’s Jonson Clarke-Harris was awarded the Sky Bet League One Player of the Season. The Posh are on the brink of promotion to the Championship, with his 29 goals leading the division. Clarke-Harris pipped Sunderland AFC’s Charlie Wyke and Hull City’s George Honeyman to the award.

Another sharpshooter in Sky Bet League Two claimed the accolade of Player of the Season, as Paul Mullin’s 29 goals have given Cambridge United one eye on promotion to League One with just two games remaining.

Elsewhere, Reading’s Michael Olise was named the EA Sports Young Player of the Season, whilst Doncaster Rovers midfielder James Coppinger claimed the prestigious Sir Tom Finney award.

Dean Lewington was honoured with the Screwfix Moment of the Season after making his 800th appearance for MK Dons.

Throughout the night, the best of the EFL were honoured across all three divisions to celebrate excellence on and off the pitch. A full list of all the winners can be seen below:
