First team awards night

8 months ago By Gary Brigden

Michael Eacott cleaned up at the awards night last on Saturday picking up Players, Managers, Supporters and Young player of the year awards.

The full rundown of the awards is as follows:

Players Player of the Year:
Joint winners: Matt Farrell / Michael Eacott
Runner Up: Asa Rixon-Nicholl

After all the votes were in this was an incredibly tight battle, with goalkeeper Michael Eacott and central midfielder Matt Farrell scooping top prize, with combative midfielder, the ginger warrior Asa Rixon-Nicholls picking up the runner up award.

Matt made an impressive 50 appearances over the course of the season scoring six goals, with Michael 39 with ten clean sheets and Asa 38 appearances and nine goals.

Managers Player of the Year:
Winner: Michael Eacott
Runner up: Aaron Bogle

Over the course of the season players were given a rating for each game, and then the totals were added up and divided by the number of games played.

Michael again came out on top, with the skipper coming out a very close second. Who knows if Aaron had found that elusive first goal (161 appearances to date without one) it might just have pushed him to top spot.

Young Player of the Year:
Winner: Michael Eacott
Runner Up: Matt Auletta

Last seasons winner Matt was relegated to the runner up spot thanks to the excellent form of Michael. Still another decent season for Matt, who notched 13 goals in 48 appearances (our second highest for the season). At just 19, and only just at that, Matt has now made 75 first team appearances.

Supporters Player of the Year:
Winner: Michael Eacott
Runner Up: Matt Farrell

Completing the Michael quadruple, the young keeper also picked up our Supporters Player of the Year, narrowly pipping joint Players Player Matt Farrell to the award.

Top Scorer:
Winner: Daryl Cooper-Smith

With 29 goals in 41 games Daryl was comfortably ahead of all other challengers for top goalscorer, with Matt Auletta 13, and Matt Ferdinando 12 the closest to him.

Joint Winners: Craig Hastings and Anson Cousins

Two players in different stages of their time with the club. Central defender Craig joined this season and has made 33 appearances scoring twice. However it is his other duties that has helped him win the award. He has turned out on numerous occasion for the reserves and 21's without complaint, and has helped guide the younger players in the those squad, and really helped with their development. Alongside that he has taken ownership of the fine money, ensuring that it has been used wisely.

Anson has been with us for a fair few seasons now, and whilst he has struggled, due mainly to the impressive form of Matt Tanton, for much game time this season he has always been supportive of the side. Always willing to turn for the reserves and 21's Anson even went on loan to Banstead to get fit, before returning to the club for the reserves cup final. Unfortunately still on crutches after his broken ankle.

Goal of the season:
Winner: Matt Ferdinando - diving header against Walton & Hersham in the 5-0 win.
We hit 90+ goals this season, but the only goal that was ever mentioned in the goal of the season competition was this one. A powerful diving header, our fourth of the game and one that left people gasping.

Runner up: Daryl Cooper-Smith - a sublime chip with the outside of his boot in the 6-3 win away at Godalming Town, near the back end of the season.

3rd: Andrew White - another from that scintillating performance against Walton & Hersham, this one being number three and a stunning flick from a low Matt Ferdinando cross.

Chairmans Award:
Winners: Matt Tanton and Craig Nelson

Two new players into the club amassing 40 appearances and 33 appearances respectively (with Craig getting on the scoresheet once). Both have made outstanding contributions to the season, and been big hits with all who have seen them play.

Future Star:
Winner: Mason Seagroatt

This was a new award this season, and looks at those from our Colts ranks who have made the steps from youth to senior football and progressed into the first team. The first winner is Mason who has been a mainstay of our U21 team this season, and who has been in and around the changing room for the first team on occasions. In the last month we saw three appearances, and a player who looked a natural in stepping up to the seniors.

Thank you to one and all for an excellent season.
