Goalkeeper Jordan Pickford bagged a hat-trick of prizes at Everton's end of season awards evening.
The 24-year-old joined from Sunderland last summer and has enjoyed a fine first season at Goodison Park, earning his first England cap in November.
He has now collected the awards for Everton's Player of the Season, Players' Player of the Season and Young Player of the Season at a ceremony at Liverpool's Philharmonic Hall.
Pickford said: "I wasn't expecting to walk away with three awards tonight, so I'm delighted and honoured.
"It means a lot to be voted for awards by the fans and your team-mates. It's been an enjoyable first season for me at a massive club.
"I'm confident I can keep improving and we will continue to improve as a team.
"The goal for us now is to win these final two games of the season and then get off to a good start next season."
Full-back Seamus Coleman won The Peoples' Club Award, having returned to action in January after suffering a broken leg while playing for Republic of Ireland in March 2017.
The award goes to people who represent the values of Everton and Coleman said: "I want to thank everyone who gave me this award.
"I am very humbled, I appreciate it very much.
"Going back to that night in January, it was the result of 10 months of hard work.
"I received great support first and foremost and I've got thank so many people here at the club who helped me and looked after me during that period.
"I wasn't nervous before the Leicester game. To get back in the changing room and see my name on the back of a blue shirt again - it's what I'd dream of ever since I was a kid and, to come back after 10 months out, brought that appreciation back.
"I've always had that great feeling, of course, but it really hit home after being out for so long."
