Jonathan Parr was crowned Crystal Palace Player of the Year after a brilliant debut season.

The 23-year-old Norwegian, who joined from Aalesund last summer, performed consistently well throughout the 2011/12 campaign.

At home at left-back or down the left wing, his versatility was a huge plus for manager Dougie Freedman - he even ended the season at right-back due to the club's injury problems.

Parr also picked up the Vice Presidents' Player Of The Year honour at Palace's end of season awards night.

Wilfried Zaha claimed the club's Young Player Of The Year prize for the second successive season.

The tricky winger has progressed nicely in the last year, adding goals to his game, and was a near ever-present making 49 appearances and scoring nine goals.

Jon Williams claimed a double with the Vice Presidents' Young Player Of The Year and Scholar Player Of The Year gongs.

Julian Speroni was given a special achievement award after chalking up more than 250 appearances for the club. Former Palace keepers Perry Suckling and John Jackson presented him with the trophy.

Darren Ambrose claimed the Goal of the Season title after his long-range wonder strike against Manchester United away in the Carling Cup.

The Paul Brooks Academy Player Of The Year was Reise Allassani, while William Hoare was the Oasis Shirley Park Academy Player Of The Year winner.
