The EPL Awards recognize excellence of professionals in Premier League football, including players, managers and teams to podcasts, blogs, commentators and TV shows of the 2009-2010 season.
More than 58,000 football supporters from around the world voted in the 33 categories. The voting was open from April 19 to May 15.
This is the second year that EPL Talk has hosted the EPL Awards (English Premier League). The awards were created as an opportunity for football supporters (not the PFA or journalists) to vote for what they considered the best of the Premier League experience.
In the inaugural 2008-09 EPL Awards, The Spurs Show won the Best EPL Club Podcast category (and received an Editor’s Choice award in the same category). In that same year, Phil Cornwell won the Best EPL Podcast Presenter award, too.
In the 2009-10 EPL Awards, The Spurs Show won an Editor’s Choice award in the Best EPL Club Podcast category and won the Best EPL Podcast Presenter award — for the second year in a row.
The Spurs Show was up against tough competition in the Best Club Podcast category from two other Playback Media podcasts, ‘Stop! Hammer Time’, the West Ham Podcast and ‘Not Just a Matter of Life and Death – the Liverpool Podcast’.
