TOM Eastman has been crowned Colchester United's Player of the Year for the fourth time.

The long-serving U's stalwart also scooped the U's coveted Players' Player of the Year accolade, along with the CUSA's Player and Away Player prizes at the club's seasonal awards.

It is the fourth time that the 28-year-old centre-back has won the Colchester United Player of the Year award, with the defender last winning it in 2018.

Eastman won the Player of the Year trophy after U's fans voted on the prizes, for the 2019-20 season.

The defender has made more than 350 appearances for the U's since joining them from neighbours Ipswich Town, in 2011.

Eastman told the U's website: "To be honest, it's come as a lovely surprise.

"Thanks to everyone who has voted for me, I'm really pleased to have won these awards.

"It's been a crazy season, but I think it has been mainly positive for us on the pitch with getting in the Play-Offs and having the decent cup run we had.

"There was massive disappointment amongst everyone at the club when we lost at Exeter and I'm sure all our supporters watching and listening were just as disappointed.

"I must have been doing something right to get these awards, and once again thanks to all the fans who voted for me.

"We missed them when they couldn't be at the Play-Off games and I hope we'll see them all back at the stadium as soon as we can safely have them back."

Kwame Poku has been named as Colchester's Young Player of the Year.

The 18-year-old has enjoyed a fine breakthrough season with the U's, having only made his professional debut for them last September.

Poku is regarded as a hot prospect for the future and played a big part in the U's reaching the League Two play-offs and the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

He made 38 appearances for the U's this season, scoring five times.

Winger Callum Harriott landed the U's Goal of the Season trophy following his spectacular strike in his side's 2-1 win over Macclesfield Town at the JobServe Community Stadium, in January.

The former Charlton Athletic and Reading winner was also the winner of the Hospital Radio Player of the Year award.
