Since Norman Hunter first won the prestigious achievement in 1971, the Leeds United Player of the Year award has been handed out every season. Whilst many players have been presented with the award on multiple occasions, only Jermaine Beckford (2008 & 2009) and Pablo Hernandez (2018 and 2019) have won it back-to-back.
