"It's a trophy I will keep for the rest of my life - I'm really delighted to have won the award," he told the club's official website.
"It is a great achievement because they are the people who pay money to come and see you play.
"It's been a tough season for all of us including myself and it's the fans that has kept me going.
"We have got incredible training facilities, we have got a great stadium and we have some fantastic fans.
