Taylor named Asian Player of the Year
20th November 2015
Swans and Wales defender Neil Taylor has been named Asian Player of the Year for the second time.
Taylor, who has an English father and Indian mother, was presented with the award at a special dinner at Wembley last night.
It was the third Asian Football Awards Dinner which recognises the achievements of British Asians in football.
Taylor, who also helped Wales reach the Euro 2016 Finals, picked up the award for the first time in 2013.
Aston Villa's 17-year-old defender Easah Suliman, who is of Pakistani heritage and captained England Under-17s, won the young player award.
Kidderminster Harriers striker Gurjit Singh, 24, is of Indian heritage and won the non-league player gong.
The organisers of the awards also hope to raise awareness at the lack of professional players predominantly from a south Asian background with only seven players in England's top four divisions with full-time contracts.
