Barry Bannan has been named Sheffield Wednesday’s Player of the Year after being an ever-present for the Yorkshire club throughout a turbulent season.
The Owls captain has been at Hillsborough since 2015, playing over 250 games for the club.
Reacting on social media, some fans have believe the 31-year-old fully deserves the accolade.
Well deserved. He’d be in my championship eleven this season.

Bannan has featured in every game for Wednesday this season, scoring twice and assisting five in 45 appearances.
Back in February, the Scotland international committed his future to the South Yorkshire club, signing a two-year extension.
Whilst some fans are happy to see him named Player of the Year; others are less than impressed with the outcome of the vote.

Can we see the voting? Thought Jack Marriott would have run away with it 🤷♂️

Bannan will be hoping to make it a double celebration tomorrow, as Darren Moore’s side face Derby County at Pride Park, in a game which could decide both club’s Championship futures.
