Baxter proud of achievements with Everton second-string

Everton striker Jose Baxter was delighted with his Reserve Player of the Season award.

His five goals helped the team pick up results in what proved a difficult campaign and that was recognised at the Club's End of Season Awards last month.

"It (the award) meant a lot to me," Baxter told evertontv. "There are some really good players at the Club who are in the reserves and coming from the youth team so it was great to win it.

"I have learnt loads this season. Every single day in training and every single game you play you are always picking things up and developing your game.

"It has not been a season like we expected in terms of the results - we probably expected to do better - but it has been a season for young lads to get a game and improve and that is what the Club wants and what the players want.

"Getting plenty of time on the pitch is the main thing but scoring the goals was a bonus and there is obviously no better feeling than putting the ball in the back of the net."
