CRAIG Scott completed a memorable first season with Ashington CFC by being awarded the manager’s player of the season and supporters’ player of the season trophies at the club’s annual presentation evening on Saturday.
Philip Browell, from sponsor Browell Smith & Co solicitors, presented the trophies.
A delighted Scott said: “I’m absolutely chuffed, to be honest.
“I knew I had had a good season and played well but I never expected to get both trophies.
“I had a tough time at West Allotment Celtic the previous year when the club were relegated and when I first came to Ashington no one knew who I was, but I just concentrated on giving 110 per cent every game and doing the best I could.”
The 24-year-old centre half added: “It’s onwards and upwards now for the next campaign.
“I know the manager has agreed terms with a couple of new players in Paul Antony and Phil Cave and we’ll be looking to push on again next season.
“Personally I’ll give the same as I have done this past season and hopefully we’ll do even better.”
Goalkeeper Karl Dryden took the award of players’ player of the season whilst Andrew Johnson finished top goalscorer with 16 goals and Jonny Godsmark’s outstanding effort in the 2-0 victory over Spennymoor in the FA Carlsebrg Vase saw him take the goal of the season accolade.
Meanwhile five different players won awards for Ashington Colliers.
Manager’s player of the year was Sean Gibson; players’ player was Iain Nickalls; committee player of the year was Glen Bolton; young player of the year was Craig Towart with David Brown’s haul of 17 goals earned him the award of top goalscorer.
