Freddie Woodman wins the Sky Bet Championship Golden Glove award

8 May 2021

Swansea City goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has won the Sky Bet Championship Golden Glove award for the 2020/21 season.

The 24-year-old, who has spent the last two seasons on loan from Newcastle United, finished the season with 20 clean sheets, three ahead of a trio of rivals.

The award, which takes into account all league games, and does not include Play-Off fixtures, was presented to Woodman after Swansea’s 2-0 defeat against Watford.

Woodman played all but one of the Swans’ Sky Bet Championship fixtures this season, as Steve Cooper’s men secured a place in the Play-Offs for the second season in a row.

Woodman said: “I feel guilty for accepting it because many people look at clean sheets as down to the goalkeeper, but I know how hard the team has worked for clean sheets.

“Every clean sheet we’ve had this season, after the game it’s always been a collective congratulations to everyone.

“While my name is on the award, it’s the team that has really won the award. Every player has played their part and should feel. 

“It’s a massive team effort, and it’s an amazing achievement to keep 20 clean sheets in the Championship.

“Keeping clean sheets gives the team a huge opportunity to win matches, and it’s put us in a great position in the league.

“Hopefully we can take this into the Play-Offs."
