Liam Gibbs has been crowned as Norwich City's Young Player of the Season following his breakthrough campaign at Carrow Road. 

The midfielder, who joined the club from rivals Ipswich Town in 2021, has made over 30 Championship appearances this season and impressed despite only turning 20 in December. 

Gibbs was handed his senior debut by Dean Smith on the opening day of the Championship season and has established himself as a part of the first team squad throughout this year. 

Despite their underperformance in the Championship, Gibbs has offered hope for the future and is set to play a role under David Wagner next season. 

Upon becoming the latest recipient of the award, dedicated to the late Etty Smith, Gibbs reveals his delight at capping off a productive campaign with the accolade. 

"I'm absolutely delighted to have won," Gibbs told City's official channels. "I know that there are some big names who are now in the first team who have won this award in previous years, so I am hoping to follow in their footsteps and become a regular first team player next season.

"It's been really positive since I joined the club. I had my first season in the U23s and then managed to get a few appearances on the bench. I made my debut this season and kicked on really to have my first season in the first team.

"To win Young Player of the Season in your first season is really impressive so I'm really proud of myself.

"Before the start of the season I didn't expect to play as much as I did. I feel like I have achieved my goals, which were to get into the first team, make my debut, and to get my goal (at Blackburn). I'm very proud. I'm ready to kick on ready for next season.

"There's been a lot of ups and downs this season, there has been a lot of learning and there is a lot of learning still to do. You have a lot of experienced heads in the dressing room helping you through it.

"I want to be more of a regular first team player, more starts, play 90 minutes and really help the team push for promotion - that is what we want to do."
