Burnley midfielder Josh Brownhill has been named as a finalist alongside the likes of Kevin de Bruyne and Mo Salah for this year’s North West Football Awards.

Brownhill is up for the Premier League Player of the Season prize after impressing during a tough campaign for the Clarets.

In addition to De Bruyne and Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Jordan Pickford are also in the running to win the award.

Brownhill also received a special mention at last year’s event for his community work in the local area.

Meanwhile, Burnley youngster Owen Dodgson is up for the Rising Star Award after impressing for the Under-23 side.

Dodgson also made his senior debut last term, coming off the bench in a 2-1 defeat against Huddersfield at Turf Moor in the FA Cup.

Harvey Elliott, Anthony Gordon, Alejandro Garnacho, James McAtee, George Johnston, Josh Bowler and Robbie Gotts are also in the running.

And Millie Ravening is a finalist for the Women’s Rising Star Award after scoring 12 league goals last season as the Clarets finished fourth in the Northern Premier Division.

She faces competition from Ella Toone, Lauren Hemp, Hanna Bennison, Leanne Kiernan and Lily Robinson.

Burnley FC in the Community has also been nominated in two categories – Community Club of the Season and Community initiative of the Season.

The community town centre foodbank has earned recognition, having helped more than 30,000 people this year.

The annual event takes place on Monday, November 7 at The Point, which is part of Emirates Old Trafford.
