JON WORTHINGTON was "proud and honoured" to be voted Town's Player of the Year by supporters.
The 21-year-old polled almost 28% of votes to pip Steve Yates (17%) and Efe Sodje (15%) for the Hargreaves Trophy.
"I wasn't expecting this at all but I'm delighted, proud and honoured," said Worthington.
"It's been a great season for me personally and, if we win promotion, then it will cap it all.
"There are some very famous names on this trophy, great players from the history of Huddersfield Town, and I'm very happy to have my name among them.
"It's an unbelievable honour and I'd like to thank all the fans - not just those who voted but everyone who has backed us so brilliantly this season.
"We are determined to win automatic promotion and we are confident that we will."
Yates has the consolation of being voted Players' Player of the Year, while Nathan Clarke took the trophy for most Examiner Man of the Match Awards with seven, just one ahead of Jonathan Stead.
Over 400 guests attended the Supporters Club-organised Player of the Year Dance at the McAlpine on Saturday night, when the squad were introduced by Town fan and YTV journalist Will Venters.
Despite Stead's 18 goals before his move to Blackburn, Andy Booth took the top scorer trophy with 13.
Reserve Player of the Year, which was announced and presented by former chairman David Taylor, went to goalkeeper Phil Senior despite his 17 appearances in the first team.
A special award for the most outstanding young prospect went to John McAliskey, while David Mirfin was voted the most promising Academy third year.
The first year award went to David Walls, who has just made his breakthrough into the Reserve side, and the second year prize went to Michael Collins, the Halifax lad who has earned rave reviews with the Republic of Ireland Under 18 side.
The award for the most promising first-team newcomer was shared by wing-backs Andy Holdsworth and Anthony Lloyd, while the away supporters chose Sodje as their Player of the Year.
Entertainment at the awards night was sponsored by Huddersfield's Grosvenor Casino.
