Joe Allen named Welsh player of the year

Joe Allen capped an incredible year on Monday night when he was named Welsh Player of the Year at the FAWannual awards dinner at the National Museum in Cardiff.
He becomes the second Pembrokeshire man to win the award, following Simon Davies who claimed it in 2002 and 2008.
Allen was also named Club Player of the Year after his superb season with the Swans in the Premiership, and his immediate impact at Anfield since moving to Liverpool in August.
The 22-year-old didn’t even begin the Swans’ 2011/2012 campaign in the starting line-up, but after forcing his way in, caught the eye with a string of good performances.
When Brendan Rodgers left the Liberty Stadium for Anfield in the summer, he subsequently signed Allen for a Welsh record of £15 million.
This week, the transfer was covered on the Channel 5 documentary ‘Being Liverpool.’ But his thoughts will now turn to Friday night with Wales desperately needing a win in their Euro 2012 qualifier with Scotland in Cardiff.
