Jordan Henderson has been named the England U21 Player of the Year for 2012.
Henderson led the Young Lions to six wins from six outings last year as his side qualified for Euro2013 and received 36% of a fans’ vote on TheFA.com to claim the very first version of the award.
Young Lions manager Stuart Pearce said: “He’s very valuable to our group and puts the team before himself every time. He deserves every success as he works so hard.
"Jordan’s been pivotal in pushing us towards the Euros in the summer."
