Jamie Vardy presented with special honor at the PFA Awards

Jamie Vardy was facilitated by the FA at their annual PFA Awards nights for scoring in 11 consecutive Premier League matches this season.

Vardy achieved this unique feat by scoring against Manchester United to ironically beat the previous record of 10 consecutive games set by Ruud Van Nistelrooy.

Vardy started his run on August 29, 2015 when he scored in a 1-1 draw against Bournemouth, and his run kept going till November 28 when he netted against United to break Van Nistelrooy’s record.

The FA decided to honor Vardy’s feat by awarding him with a special memento and the award was presented by English Football’s great Gordon Taylor.

Despite winning the award, Vardy could yet be punished by The FA after the striker was charged with improper conduct for his outburst against the referee Jon Moss after getting sent off against West Ham.

Vardy missed Leicester’s 4-0 win against Swansea earlier tonight and if he is found guilty of FA’s charges, he will miss the game against Manchester United on May 1.

However, tonight is the time for celebration for Vardy and his Leicester teammate Riyad Mahrez, who was named PFA Player of the Year for 2015/16.
