Congratulations to Reading midfielder Aaron Tshibola who you picked as your Rookie of the Year for 2015/16. Tshibola saw off Deniss Rakels, Jonathan Bond and George Evans to pick up the gong.

Tshibola was a key part of the squad that were as high as second back in October before a series of injuries saw him sidelined. In his absence the team also struggled, with the 21-year-old failing to complete 90 minutes under new boss Brian McDermott due to his injury problems.

Aaron took 87% of your first place votes, with his nearest challenger being January recruit Rakels, who scooped 19.6% of the top placed ballots and 72% of the second placed votes. Jonathan Bond edged out George Evans to complete the top three.

So a big congratulations to Mr Tshibola, here's to hoping for a an injury free 2016/17!
