2015 is becoming a year to remember for former Watford loanee Hector Bellerin.

An injury to Mathieu Debuchy and the erratic form of Calum Chambers resulted in the Spaniard being introduced to first team football for the first time in his Arsenal career last season.

Bellerin, who made the best of that opportunity, has now been named the Young Catalan Player of the Year .

The accolade handed out by Federacio Catalana de Futbol (FCF) is meant to recognize the stand-out performers in the Catalan community (Barcelona) – the homeland of Bellerin and many of football’s brightest talents.

FC Barcelona’s Gerard Pique was also handed the prize for senior players after winning the Champions League in May.

Bellerin is the first Arsenal star to scoop the award after scoring two goals as a fullback in only 43 appearances so far for the Gunners.

The 20-year-old, who is currently sidelined by a groin injury, arrived in Spain to receive his recognition on Monday night.

Here were some shots of Hector from the ceremony!
