It was a hat-trick to remember for Hull City star Jacob Greaves at the Tigers’ Player of the Year awards on Tuesday night at the MKM Stadium as the squad celebrated what has been a memorable campaign so far and could yet end in promotion to the Premier League.

Greaves collected Liam Rosenior’s Player of Year crown which was announced by skipper Lewie Coyle, the Supporters’ and the Players’ Player crowns in recognition of what’s been a campaign to remember for the 23-year-old, in what has been a season of significant progress for the club in challenging the top six throughout.

The trio of awards capped a fine season for Greaves who was named in the Championship’s Team of the Year earlier this month in recognition of what’s been a stellar campaign on the pitch for the Hull-born defender.

Elsewhere, Alfie Jones picked up the PFA Community Champion Award for the work he's done away from the pitch with the Tigers Trust, and Jaden Philogene was rewarded with the Young Player of the Year crown as voted for by Liam Rosenior, having gone to Greaves for the past three seasons.

Ozan Tufan's stunning goal which finished off a flowing team move in the 3-0 win over QPR earlier this month collected the Goal of the Season gong which was voted for by those guests on the night while Stan Ashbee won the Frank Donoghue Academy Player of the Year for the second consecutive season having made his senior debut in the FA Cup replay at Birmingham City in January.
