The Football League has announced that Wycombe Wanderers player Kadeem Harris has won The Football Manager Apprentice of the Year Award for the npower League 2 at the 2011 Football League Awards.

Players eligible for this award are those in the second year of their apprenticeship (i.e. be in his 'Under 18' year and be registered as either a second year scholar or as a first year professional). Judges looked at the record of the player in all competitions since he became an apprentice, alongside his educational attainment, disciplinary record and any other outstanding achievements.

On winning his award, Harris said, "I am chuffed to bits. I was playing Sunday League football in West London last year and now to be up in front of all these people is a dream come true. I have gone from the bottom of the ladder to here and I am enjoying it. I would like to thank everyone at Wycombe for their help and support."

One of the judges, Tom Dart, said Kadeem was, "A strong candidate whose dedication comes through in his coaching qualification and off pitch contributions. Kadeem is a role model to all".
