Williams lands trio of Melbourne Heart awards

David Williams has picked up a hat-trick of prizes at the Melbourne Heart 2013/14 Player of the Year awards night.

The 26-year old winger was named the Heart Player of the Year, the Supporters' Player of the Year and the John Aloisi Golden Boot award following a stunning individual A-League campaign.

Williams, who scored 12 goals for the Heart, beat Orlando Engelaar, Massimo Murdocca, Mate Dugandzic, Jason Hoffman and Rob Wielaert to the Player of the Year award and was also voted in by the fans to clinch the Supporters' award.

The efforts of Williams were praised by Heart head coach John van 't Schip who feels the former Brondby and North Queensland Fury forward can kick on and become a top scorer in Australia's domestic competition.

"David was an enthusiastic contributor in a difficult campaign," van 't Schip said.

"He scored important goals for us and to score 12 goals playing in varying attacking roles, demonstrates he is an important player for us.

"We have great faith in David and the coaching staff believe that he still has plenty of potential to become one of the A-League's best goal scorers."
