Saturday Player of the Year, Golden Boot and Ever Presents.
1st Team – Club captain Shaun Cavanagh won the award for the 4th time in his career ahead of Tom Webb and John Elliott. Golden Boot was Craig Ewart (17) for the 1st time in his fledgling Garnett career.
Reserves – Dave Peat beat Lee Kent, closely followed by Liam Riley. Harry Tulip (11) took the Golden Boot from Skilly.
Academy – Adam "Robbo" Robins beat fresher Chris Inman, closely followed by Adam Bell. Adam Bell (10) took the Golden Boot.
A Team - New recruit Darren Campbell narrowly beat Steve Wilkinson with Tom Rigby taking third place. Golden Boot was Mark Envy with 16 goals, the third time in a row he has won the award.
B Team - Kev Lister took 1st place ahead of Will Wykes who also took the Golden Boot (10).
Club Man of the Year - Phil Kyle's tremendous efforts for the club this year were recognised with the Clubman of the year award. Phil has done more for the club in his first full year than anyone else has in any of their seasons. Most of you will be aware of Phil's efforts as 1st team manager and as coach in charge of training for the whole club. Fewer will be aware of the fantastic work he has done at Benson Park, not only in improving the playing facilities but also involving the local community. Phil has also attracted two major sponsors to date and recruited a ladies team. Additionally Phil's labours have saved the club thousands of pounds in savings from not paying for the pitch to be marked and cut. With the help of his wife, Dot and daughter Pippa he has also put on after the match refreshments. I hope everyone is as inspired by him as I am by seeing someone put so much energy and commitment into the club I love.
Golden Boot - Harry Tulip impressed during his first season at the club ending the season in the first team and took his 1st Club golden boot award with 36 goals in 45 appearances, a clear 10 goals ahead of Craig Ewart in second place.
Most Improved Player - For his commitment and availability for every team throughout the club and showing a massive improvement on previous season Mike "Mallie-anagh" Hedderman took the award for the most improved player this season.
Centurians - 4 players went past the 100 mark this season Andy Powers 102 (2), Matty Laws 104 (8), Andy Parkinson 136 (6) and Brendan Mallie 103 (8). All fully deserve the utmost respect afforded to Centurians. But a special mention to Phil Church and Dan Ford for becoming only the 11th & 12th Double Centurians and most of all to Danny Sherwood who played his 300th game for the Green and Black to become only the 2nd ever Triple Centurian.
