Gomez walked away with the accolade – previously won by Leon Britton and Jason Scotland – after the closest vote yet amongst the supporters.

He fought off a strong challenge from Britton himself to take the award by just a handful of votes.   The award capped a memorable season at the Swans where the team has played a brand of football rarely seen before in these parts.

Gomez was just one of nine winners on an evening attended by 570 people and was the final award of the ceremony hosted by Kevin Johns.

There was consolation for Leon Britton who was named away player of the year as well as players' player of the year whilst Ferrie Bodde's wonder strike at Preston was enough to see him voted on the night as the scorer of goal of the season.

Jason Scotland (no surprises) was crowned top goalscorer whilst Joe Allen was the only real winner of the young player of the year award.

In addition there was a special achievement award for Alan Tate, clubman of the year for Marcos Painter and the Swansea Supporters Trust Lifetime Achievement award went to Mel Nurse.
