England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney wins England Player of the Year

England Captain Wayne Rooney has been named England Footballer of the Year for the second time in a row.

The 30 year old earned 37% of the votes cast by members of the England Supporters Club and has now won it four times.

Spurs striker Harry Kane was runner-up with 30% and Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart in third place with 19%.

England captain Rooney notched five goals for his country last year as they sealed qualification to this summer's Euros with a perfect ten out of ten wins.

But he also marked a personal landmark as he overtook Sir Bobby Charlton's record to become England's leading all time goalscorer.

Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland was voted Under-21 Player of the Year.
