Kaikai, 25, stunning goal against Sunderland that handed the Seasiders a vitally important three points against their promotion rivals at the Stadium of Light, on 27 April won the award.

Kaikai said: “It’s a great personal achievement to win any award, and I’m really pleased that my goal against Sunderland has done that. 

“I kind of got lucky on the day because I’m normally on the left-hand side. However, this time I was on the right, and it favoured my right foot. Once the ball came out, I had just one thing in my mind – and that was to hit it! 

“I think it is definitely the best goal I’ve scored in my career to date.” Kaikai beat off competition from Burton Albion’s Joe Powell and Hull City’s Callum Elder.

Sullay Kaikai moved to Blackpool on a free transfer from Dutch side NAC Breda in the summer of 2019.

The exciting winger started his career with Crystal Palace, where he made 11 appearances for the first-team and won the club’s Young Player of the Year award.

While at Selhurst Park, he spent time out on loan in The EFL and had very successful stints with Shrewsbury Town and Brentford.
