Blues defender Curtis Davies was the star of the show as he claimed two top gongs at the Player Awards 2013.

Both teammates and fans recognised the centre-back's tremendous displays during the 2012/13 campaign by voting him both the Players' Player and Player of the Season, sponsored by EZE Group.

The 28-year-old has been Mr Consistent for Blues at the back this season while contributing at the other end of the pitch with six goals to his name.

Meanwhile goalkeeper Jack Butland wrapped up a stunning first full season in senior football by claiming the Young Player of the Season, sponsored by Links Projects, at the glitzy event held at the ICC Birmingham.

Bluenoses voted Wade Elliott's screamer against Leeds United in the FA Cup back in January the Goal of the Season, sponsored by JS Spooner, while Marlon King's tally of 14 saw him claim his second successive Top Goalscorer award, sponsored by Birmingham International Coaches.

Koby Arthur's rapid rise from non-league football to the Blues first-team resulted in the exciting teenage forward being named the Academy Player of the Season, sponsored by HJ Wealth Planning.

Nathan Redmond, on behalf of the Blues squad, collected Moment of the Season, sponsored by Vin-X, for the impressive 4-0 Good Friday victory at Crystal Palace before returning to the stage to pick up the Player in the Community Award, sponsored by IFX, for his work with the club's Official Charity Partner, Help Harry Help Others.

Elsewhere Paul Robinson was named True Blue Juniors Player of the Season, sponsored by Superstars.

Rob Shannon's record of not missing a home or away game since 1974 was enough for him to be named Supporter of the Season, sponsored by Equidtrade. Meanwhile St. Andrew's Stadium tour guide Rick Coleman was handed the Unsung Hero Award, sponsored by Tonic Cosmetics, Industrial Brushware and Safetynet Security, while Birmingham City Ladies FC picked up a Special Achievement Award, sponsored by Hollywood Monster, for a season that saw them lift the FA Women's Cup.
