Leeds United leading scorer Jermaine Beckford picked up the fans Player of the Year award at the club's annual ceremony on Tuesday.

He took more than 50% of the vote after becoming the fifth player in the club's history to score 30 goals in a season.

Midfielder Fabian Delph was rewarded for his outstanding season with three individual awards.

He won the fans Young Player of the Year, the goal of the season, and the Players' Player of the Year.

Beckford, who has missed the last three games with a thigh injury, pipped Robert Snodgrass to the top award.

His 31 goals this season have helped Leeds into the League One play-offs as they look to end a two-year stay in League One.

Delph, 19, who has risen through the club's academy and is now an established first-team player, won the Goal of the Season award for his effort against Brighton in January.

Midfielder Andrew Hughes was given the club's 'Most Contribution to the Community' award, while Jonathan Douglas and Ben Parker both picked up Chairman's Special awards.
