Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham has landed a prestigious double after being named senior and young Player of the Year at the London Football Awards.

The 22-year-old England international, who has scored 15 goals for the club to date this season, beat off competition from team-mate Jorginho and last year’s winner Son Heung-min to claim the main prize, while he edged out another fellow Blue, Mason Mount, to lift the junior award.

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema won the Women’s Player of the Year title for the second-successive year, while Brentford boss Thomas Frank took the manager’s prize in a field which also included Frank Lampard and Roy Hodgson.

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

Watford’s Ben Foster was named Goalkeeper of the Year and Brentford’s Ollie Watkins EFL Player of the Year.

There was recognition too for QPR’s director of football Les Ferdinand, who was honoured for his outstanding contribution to football in London.

The former England frontman, who had spells with QPR, Brentford, Tottenham, West Ham, Reading and Watford during his illustrious playing career and has worked at Spurs and Rangers since his retirement, joins previous winners Glenn Hoddle, Ian Wright, Frank Lampard, John Terry and Arsene Wenger on the roll of honour.
