3. Golden Boy award 2014
The Golden Boy is an award that is given by sports journalists to a young football player playing in Europe perceived to have been the most impressive during a calendar year.
Stones was listed among the nominees for the Golden Boy 2014 Award. Fellow Everton winger Gerard Deulofeu was nominated alongside Stones. The other nominees were fellow England internationals Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw and eventual winner Raheem Sterling.
This was despite the fact that he had missed the last 2 months of the season due to an ankle injury picked up against Manchester United on 5th October, 2014.
