CRYSTAL Palace skipper Mile Jedinak has been named the club's player of the year. The Australian midfielder fought off competition from the likes of top scorer Glenn Murray, Manchester United-bound Wilfried Zaha, and young star Jonny Williams to scoop the award, which is voted for by the fans. Jedinak pipped 30-goal hitman Murray to the accolade, in what was described as one of the closest votes in the history of the award. The winner was announced at the Eagles' annual awards night, held at Fairfield Halls on Tuesday. Earlier in the evening, Williams was named the club's young player of the year, following a season in which he broke into the full Welsh squad. Glenn Murray's strike against Middlesbrough earned him the goal of the year gong. After receiving his award, Jedinak, 28, told Palace's official website: "It's been a real tough season I can say that safely. A rollercoaster, but one that I've thoroughly enjoyed. "To be recognised in this way is a huge honour." The result mirrors the findings of a poll conducted by the Advertiser today, where 49 per cent of those polled voted for Sydney-born Jedinak as their player of the year, ahead of Murray on 42 per cent.
