Tim Krul crowned Falcon Cranes Player of the Season for 2019-20

22 July 2020

Tim Krul has been voted the 2019-20 Falcon Cranes Player of the Season by Norwich City supporters.

Behind Krul, Todd Cantwell finished second and Alex Tettey came third.

Speaking to canaries.co.uk, Krul said: “It’s a big honour. To be part of the history of the club is special.

“It hasn’t been the ideal outcome this season, we obviously wanted to stay up. But to get an individual accolade like this is something to be proud of.

“It’s been an amazing two years so far and some journey. From when I first came in to now, it’s been an incredible 24 months.

“I do feel there’s a massive connection there with the fans. It’s a shame they’re not at Carrow Road at the moment but leading up to the break, they were right behind us and the atmosphere is second to none.

“I had a rough start and everybody was doubting me after the first few games. And then the journey kicked in, I felt my confidence coming back and we started to get a few wins off the back of that.

“My relationship with the fans has gone from strength to strength ever since then.”

City’s number one has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season, producing a string of outstanding performances in goal.

Highlights from an individual standpoint include a two penalty saves in the game against Manchester United at Carrow Road and a heroic display in the FA Cup fifth round shootout triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in March.

Krul becomes the fifth goalkeeper to receive the Barry Butler Memorial Trophy after Kevin Keelan, Chris Woods, Bryan Gunn and Andy Marshall.

“I know Bryan Gunn very well, he’s a legend here. I had the honour to meet Kevin Keelan in Tampa Bay as well," he added.

“In years to come, I’ll look back on this trophy and realise in a few years how special it is.”
