Jasper Waalkens has been named as the Youth Player of the year by a vote of the league's head coaches. The PSV junior midfielder beat off competition from Willem II player Ratko Vansimpsen and ADO Den Haag player John Verhoek. Rochdi Achenteh, another PSV youth player, won the prize in 2007.
Coaches choice
After each game, coaches of all teams award three points, two and one respectively to the three best players of the team they have just met. The annual award is presented to the youth player that has been given the highest number of points. 19-year-old Waalkens is the winner of the 2007/08 campaign. He was born in Winterswijk, but raised in Schijndel and joined PSV in 2002 after he had come through the ranks at FC Den Bosch.
