Huddersfield skipper Peter Clarke has been voted fans' PFA League One player of the year. Central defender Clarke, who won the PFA's award for March, saw off competition from Rochdale's Gary Jones, Bournemouth goalkeeper Shwan Jalal, Charlton striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, Southampton's Adam Lallana, Tommy Miller of Sheffield Wednesday and Hull's former Peterborough striker Aaron McLean. Clarke told the club's official website: "I'd like to thank every Town fan who voted for me in this award, your support is fantastic and very much appreciated. I'm honoured to accept this prestigious award on their behalf. "It's great to be recognised personally, but I'm accepting this award on behalf of the team. Hopefully we will have something else to celebrate come the end of the season - promotion to the Championship." Clarke has been a virtual ever-present this season, scoring four goals, and has made a total of 106 appearances for the Terriers since arriving on a free transfer from Southend in the summer of 2009.
