Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt admits being named as the club's player of the season is a 'massive achievement'.
The 22-year-old was voted by the supporters as the club's best player after helping the Seasiders push for the Championship play-offs this season.
Bridcutt has missed just five games for the this term after moving from Chelsea in the summer of 2010.
He said: "It's a massive achievement for me and means a lot.
"A number of lads deserved it. For the fans to vote for me is massive. Hopefully there's more good years to come for me."
Gus Poyet's side will miss out on the top six this season as they trail Cardiff in sixth place by seven points with just one game remaining.
But it has been an extraordinary season for Brighton, who moved into their new stadium at the start of the campaign.
Bridcutt has paid tribute to Poyet, who played in the same position during a long, successful career.
He said: "He's (Poyet) had a massive effect on my career and my game.
"Since day one when I came here, he's always encouraged me and is always telling me things and I'm always learning."
