The Sheffield United striker’s goalscoring exploits saw Sharp earn the Screwfix Moment of the Season.

The lifelong Blade wrote himself into the record books earlier this season when he reached 220 league goals since making his debut back in 2004.

The tally took Sharp beyond former Southampton and England striker, Rickie Lambert to become the leading goalscorer in the EFL this century.

After picking up the prize, Sharp said: "This is absolutely fantastic, it's a really proud moment. Personal accolades are brilliant, and it's great to receive this tonight - I'll reflect on tonight as a proud one.
