Forward Tom Lawrence played 45 games for club and country during the 2018/19 campaign and made a telling contribution.
He netted eight goals in all, seven for Derby County, one for his country, whilst also assisting five times.
He netted a dramatic winner on the opening day of the 2018/19 campaign as he looped a header into the corner to seal victory for the Rams.
Lawrence scored three for the Rams in the opening month of the season before netting for Wales in their 4-1 Nations League win over the Republic of Ireland.
He scored a screamer in the 2-2 draw against Southampton in the Third Round of the FA Cup, whilst he netted the opening goal in the crucial 0-2 victory over Bristol City at Aston Gate in April.
A boyhood Manchester United supporter, Lawrence was handed his senior debut for the club by current Wales boss Ryan Giggs in a 3-1 win against Hull City at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.
Lawrence left at the end of that season in pursuit of regular first team football and he joined Leicester City in September 2014.
He headed out on loan with Rotherham United, Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City, before he enjoyed a breakout year at Ipswich Town.
Lawrence scored 11 times for Mick McCarthy’s side during the 2016/17 season, whilst he also provided 11 assists, and it was that creative output that persuaded The Rams to bring him to Pride Park Stadium last summer.
On the international scene, Lawrence pledged his allegiance to Wales and he has featured for his country from Under-17 level right through to the senior set-up.
He made his senior debut in October 2015, and he grabbed his first goal for his country against Georgia shortly after his move to Derby, whilst he added a second goal against Panama in November 2017.
