Kightly Bags Award

Wolverhampton Wanderers` Michael Kightly has won the FourFourTwo Young Player of the Year Award for the Coca-Cola Football League at the 2008 Football League Awards incorporating FourFourTwo`s Top 50 Football League Players.

The announcement was made at a gala dinner at the London Hilton on Park Lane on Sunday 2nd March 2008.

The 22-year-old Wolves midfielder received the accolade as a result of being ranked 3rd in the FourFourTwo Top 50 Football League Players which was announced on the night. This made him the highest ranked under-21 representative, and as a result, the FourFourTwo Young Player of the Year for the Coca-Cola Football League.

Commenting on the 2008 Football League Awards, The Football League Chairman, Lord Mawhinney, said: "For the third consecutive year, The Football League Awards has been an enormous success.

"Once again, it has given us the opportunity to recognise and reward the outstanding contributions made by fans, clubs and players to the continued growth and development of league football."

The number one spot in the FourFourTwo Top 50 Football League Players went to West Bromwich Albion striker, Kevin Phillips, followed by Andy Gray of Charlton Athletic and Michael Kightly of Wolverhampton Wanderers. The full list of The Top 50 Football League Players can be found in the April issue of FourFourTwo which is on sale now, and is also available to view on the FourFourTwo website www.fourfourtwo.com.

The Football League Awards show will be aired on Sky Sports 1 on Thursday 6th

Quality player is Kightley, one of the best in the division when he's injury free, just wish he wouldn't keep scoring against us (QPR). He'll get another chance in a few weeks, but I think we'll be far better equipt at Molyneux than we have been in recent years. Usually its rollover and die.

Is top quality in this division.

HIs loss has been massive to us. No team should be reliant on one player, but Kights is eceptional, and having him out has cost us dear
Stuart Smith
Yes well done. Now from all of us at Pompey, go stuff the scummers tonite. Lats seasons 6-0 home defeat was embarrassing. No repeats please.
