Applewood Independent are the proud shirt sponsor of the newly announced ‘Stoke City Player of the Year’ Nick Powell.

Following an online poll, 27-year-old Powell from Crewe received an impressive 59% of the total votes.

Last season Powell scored 12 Championship goals and assisted a further 3 across 39 games. Not only did the former Manchester United midfielder gain acclaim for his productivity at the top end of the pitch, but his overall teamwork made him a key figure in Michael O’Neill’s side.

After receiving his award, Powell declared: “It’s been a tough season, but I appreciate the support from the fans. Considering the supporters haven’t been in the stadium and we haven’t seen them all season, they’ve always continued their support which has been nice.”
