Thomas Kaminski has been named as Rovers’ player of the year after an excellent debut campaign at Ewood Park.

The Belgian goalkeeper was signed from KAA Gent last summer and has been a virtual ever present between the sticks, playing 44 times.

That form has seen him recognised with call-ups to the Belgium national squad and he is eyeing a place in their Euro 2020 squad this summer.

He is the first goalkeeper to win the prize since Paul Robinson (2011), with Brad Friedel (2003), John Filan (1999) and Terry Gennoe (1985) previous winners of the award.

Kaminski won the award ahead of top scorer Adam Armstrong and Liverpool loanee Harvey Elliott, but both were winners of other prizes.

Armstrong, who has scored 26 goals in all competitions and passed 50 goals for the club this season, was named as the players’ player of the year, and also the junior Rovers player of the year.

That meant the 24-year-old was a double award winner for a second successive season having claimed the player, and goal, of the season, prizes in 2019/20.

This season’s Peter White Memorial Trophy was won by loanee Elliott, the teenager taking the best goal prize following an online vote.

The award, which is into its 20th year, was named in memory of the Lancashire Telegraph’s long-serving Rovers reporter who died in 2000.

Elliott won the award for his curling effort against Millwall in November, with Joe Rothwell's strike at Brentford runner-up, with Elliott's solo effort against Norwich City rounding off the top three.

Meanwhile, Tyrhys Dolan was named as the PFA Club Community Champion.

The winger has been recognised for his work surrounding mental health awareness, taking part in initiatives run by the Community Trust, the Premier League Inspires programme as well as well as the #RoversLetsTalk movement.
