Henry collects Premiership award
Thierry Henry
Henry is the Premiership's leading goalscorer
Arsenal's Thierry Henry has added to his growing list of accolades by being named Premiership Player of the Season.

The France international, 28, is the leading Premiership goalscorer with 24 strikes and has also picked up this season's football writers' award.

He surpassed Cliff Bastin's club goal-scoring record in October before going on to become the first Arsenal player to score 200 goals for the club.

He also took over the Arsenal captaincy following Patrick Vieira's departure.

Matt Appleby, from the Barclays Awards Panel, said: "Henry has graced Arsenal's last season at Highbury in magnificent style.

"He combines moments of brilliance and entertainment with match-winning goals.

"No wonder he was described by one opposition manager as 'unplayable'."

His 24 goals have come in 30 Premiership appearances in 2005/2006, including 17 goals at Highbury.

Frank Lampard won last year's prize after guiding Chelsea to the Premiership title.
