Derby County's central defensive duo of Curtis Nelson and Eiran Cashin were names as winners the Jack Stamps Player of the Season and Sammy Crooks Young Player of the Season awards on Tuesday evening.

The two have combined in the heart of defence to help the Rams to the best defensive record in the division going into the final game of the campaign against Carlisle United at Pride Park Stadium on Saturday (12:30pm kick-off).

In his debut season with the Rams, Nelson has played every minute of every game of in Sky Bet League One so far and helped the team to 21 clean sheets, whilst also contributing with two goals up the other end.

His performances, durability and leadership on the field throughout the campaign also resulted in Nelson landing the Players' Player of the Season award from his team-mates.

Speaking to RamsTV after picking up his double award, Nelson said: "I'm really pleased. It means a lot to be voted by both your peers and the fans so I'm really happy but we still haven't completed the goal for the season yet and we'll be looking to do that on Saturday."

Aside from two games that he missed through a suspension and a small injury, Cashin himself has also featured in every other match and chipped in with three goals of his own.

It also, impressively, marks the second consecutive year that Cashin has landed the award.

Cashin joined RamsTV to discuss landing the Sammy Crooks Young Player of the Season for the second year in a row.

He said: "I'm delighted. I won the award last year and had a good season last year but to build on that and go again, I'm delighted with that personally. But that's not why I play football, I play football to get promoted so fingers crossed we can get that done."
