Everton have confirmed the winners of their 2019/20 season awards with Mason Holgate and Richarlison both coming out on top.

The Brazilian has been named the club's 2019/20 Player of the Season, while Holgate has scooped both the Young Player of the Season and Players' Player of the Season awards.

Richarlison secured the award after coming out on top in a vote conducted by the club involving supporters.

After scoring 14 times during the 2018/19 season, the Brazil international went one better with 15 strikes in all competitions last season.

“Since I arrived here, it's been an honour to play for this club and long may it continue. I hope to keep this up, and to carry on honouring the blue shirt of Everton.

"In Carlo Ancelotti, the Club has got a real winner. We all need to get behind him.

"He's someone who's going to help everyone at the Club. He'll put together a winning team and I have no doubt that there are good times ahead for us."

"The game against Chelsea was one of the greatest Goodison days of my life," Kenwright said. "I felt no fear and you could feel no fear in the ground.

"Me and Farhad and every Evertonian salutes Duncan Ferguson and thank him because [he] got us back again, in more ways than one."

While Ferguson commented: "It's fantastic - I never saw it coming. We all know what a great man Howard was, how special he was, and what he did for the Club. To receive his award, I'm absolutely delighted."

Pat Van den Hauwe and Gary Stevens are the latest Everton Giants and, as already confirmed, 11-year-old Lewis Docherty is Everton's Fan of the Year as chosen by the club's Fans' Forum.

The 'Everton family' - the club's staff and supporters - have been confirmed as winners of The People's Club Award in recognition for their work during the national lockdown.

And through the club's Blue Family outreach initiative, a new staff award went to Hannah Moody, who lost a year-long battle with cancer in April at the tragically young age of 31.

The award will be named in honour of Hannah, who had worked in the club's Fan Centre for more than 14 years and left a husband, Chris, and three-year-old son, Frankie.
