SEAMUS Coleman's fantastic season continued earlier this week when he was named Everton FC's Player's Player and the Supporters Player of the Season for 2013-14.

The Killybegs native has proven to as popular with his Toffees team-mates and supporters as he finds himself with his Ireland fans and colleagues.

Coleman, 25, lit up the season for the Merseysiders with many exciting performances and he bagged seven goals from his attacking right-back role over the course of the campaign.

The upward progress of the former Sligo Rovers star has come to be identified with reign of Goodison Park chief Roberto Martinez.

Coleman told evertontv: "It's indescribable to win these two accolades. When I arrived here in 2009 I couldn't have imagined I'd be stood here with these awards in my hands.

"There must have been a lot of contenders for both of these awards this season and that says a lot about this team."

Coleman's performances for his club also made a big impression on his Premier League opponents as he was also named at right-back in the PFA Team of the Year the previous week.

"Seamus is a good example of a footballer with an incredible attitude and appetite for the game," manager Roberto Martinez. "He grows month by month. He's one of the best full-backs in world football."

Ireland fans will be looking to see Coleman make his mark for the Boys in Green under Martin O'Neill's stewardship.
