One of the biggest shocks at Brighton's end of season awards last night was that midfielder Yves Bissouma came away empty-handed, despite having an impressive season.

The 24-year-old made the joint-most appearances in the Premier League for the Seagulls along with Ben White (36), who won the men’s player of the season.

He also missed out on the men’s players’ player of the season, with Skipper Lewis Dunk scooping the award.

The 29-year-old centre back made 37 appearances in all competitions scoring five goals, with all of those coming in the league.

His fifth goal of the season against Wolves last month, meant that since his Premier League debut in August 2017, Dunk has scored 11 goals, more than any other centre-back.

Bissouma was in the running for the goal of the season award with two nominations for his volley against Everton and his superb long-range strike against Blackpool in the FA Cup.

However, he once against missed out on the award with striker Danny Welbeck winning for his strike against Leeds at the Amex.

Meanwhile Aileen Whelan won the women’s player of the season.

The 29-year-old forward scored four goals in her 22 appearances in all competitions and helped the Seagulls to record their best finish in the WSL, of sixth.

While the women’s players’ player of the season was not surprisingly won by Inessa Kaagman.

The 25-year-old has been in superb form in her debut season at the club.

She finished as their top scorer, finding the back of the net eight times in the league and getting one assist.

That put her joint ninth on the list of top scorers in the WSL with Manchester City’s Caroline Weir.

Only Pernille Harder and Ella Toone (both 9), Ellen White, Chloe Kelly and Caitlin Foord (all ten), Frank Kirby (16), Vivianne Miedema (18) and Sam Kerr (21) netted more times than the Dutch international.

Despite Kaagman’s impressive campaign there are still doubts over her future at the club.

The Seagulls have offered the former Everton and Ajax midfielder a new contract for next season, but given how well she has performed this season she is likely to attract some interest from other clubs.

Geum-Min Lee, who was on loan at Albion from Man City, was awarded the women’s goal of the season for her superb long-range effort in their 3-2 defeat to Reading last month.

In terms of the young player of the season award, Carl Rushworth was named as the men’s young player.

The 19-year-old has been a regular in between the sticks for the Under-23’s.

He made 21 appearances in all competitions and kept four cleans sheets, as they finished ninth in the BPL 2.

That form saw him earn his first call-up for England U20’s. However, he has yet to win his first cap.

Maya Le Tissier then won the women’s young player of the season.

The 19-year-old was an ever-present for Hope Powell’s side starting in all 22 of their WSL matches, helping them to keep seven clean sheets in the process.

Le Tissier was given a new role this season as she was asked to play at right back for the Seagulls, having played at centre-back in previous seasons.

She ended the campaign on a high netting her first ever-goal in the WSL, by opening the scoring in their 3-1 win over Bristol City at The People’s Pension Stadium on the final day of their league campaign.

Le Tissier was also recognised in Goal’s prestigious NXGN awards in March, where journalists from across Goal’s 44 editions voted on the brightest wonderkids in the game, born on or after January 1, 2002.

She was the only player from the UK to be included in the top ten.

Le Tissier was number seven on the list with Rosengard’s Hanna Bennison topping the list.
