5 years ago

Elias Sorensen found out on Sunday that he had lost out on one award.

The official Premier League 2 Player of the Season award having seen the 19 year old one of those nominated after scoring 20 goals for the NUFC second string.

However, today Aaron Connolly of Brighton was announced as the winner. A wasted loan spell at League One Blackpool not having done Elias Sorensen any favours.

Coincidentally though, today also saw the Danish striker play a key part in Newcastle United retaining their Hong Kong Soccer Sevens title.
