Marc Roberts has been awarded Barnsley's Player of the Year at tonight's Star Football Awards.

Roberts was presented the award by the Star's Barnsley writer Neil Goulding and Barnsley manager Paul Heckingbottom.

The defender beat off competition from his teammates Adam Davies and Marley Watkins to clinch the award.

The Barnsley conveyor belt has continued to churn out talent which seems destined for the top flight, particularly defenders.

Despite Roberts being blooded elsewhere, he has shown undoubted quality which has some tipping him for a Premier League future.

Uncompromising and powerful, he has grown as a player since taking over as captain following Conor Hourihane’s departure, emerging as an inspiring leader.
