Ross Barkley thanks Everton fans through Twitter for awards

Ross Barkley has thanked Everton fans after he picked up Young Player and Goal of the Season awards at the Everton Award Ceremony last night.

Last night saw Everton hand out their end of season gongs to those deserving of awards after an impressive season under the guidance of new boss Roberto Martinez - with Seamus Coleman picking up the main award of the night.

The Republic of Ireland international has had a sensational season at right-back and won the Player of the Year award ahead of Romelu Lukaku, Gareth Barry and James McCarthy - and of course Ross Barkley.

But the England international will not be too disappointed with missing out on the main award - as he still walked away with two trophies for himself.

Barkley won the Everton Young Player of the Year award and also picked up Goal of the Season. Which goal I hear you ask?

The left-foot strike against Norwich City? The free-kick against Swansea? The solo run and finish against Newcastle United?

No, it is the most recent strike that won him the accolade - the almost Rooney-esque curling effort against Manchester City at the weekend.

And Barkley has taken to Twitter to thank fans for all their support in his breakout year for the club:
