ROB Dickie was humbled after being voted player of the season by Oxford United's supporters.

The Andrew Knapton Trophy, named after the voice of the London Road who died in 2001, is normally presented on the pitch before the final home game of the season.

But with the U's play-off games being held behind closed doors, the announcement was made by club captain John Mousinho before training at the Kassam Stadium today.

Dickie, who has had a superb campaign, finished ahead of James Henry, with Cameron Brannagan in third.

The centre back said: "I'm really thankful to the fans for voting me.

"I feel really proud of that, we've had an amazing season and there are so many candidates who could have taken this award because there have been some exceptional performances.

"It's been an incredible season – we've beaten a Premier League club, we've taken others the distance, we've got to the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup but above all that our league campaign has been exceptional.

"I really appreciate it, but the job's not done yet - individually and as a team."
