Colliers to honour their individual performers at end of season presentation

ASHINGTON CFC hold their annual presentation night on Saturday in the Woodhorn Lane clubhouse.

Player of the season awards for the senior side, who finished eighth in the STL Northern League’s first division, and the reserve outfit Ashington Colliers, who have a cup final next week, will be made.

First team manager Gary Middleton, who is in the process of looking to bring in two or three fresh faces to the club in time for the new campaign, said: “I think there will be a few players in the pipeline for the awards.

“For instance, defender Darren Lough has been outstanding, goalkeeper Karl Dryden and midfielder Andrew Johnson have both had a terrific seasons whilst striker Stephen Young has scored more than 30 goals.

“I would imagine all four to be in contention.”

Club chairman Ian Lavery said: “The awards ceremony promises to be an excellent evening as it always is and we would welcome supporters to join us.

“There are a whole number of squad members in the running for the club awards and in addition to the presentation, there will be a buffet and disco.”

The evening will start at 7.30pm.

Meanwhile, David Brown’s Ashington Colliers side will face Heaton Stannington in the final of the Kicks Leisure George Dobbins League Cup on Wednesday, May 25.

The game will be staged at Killingworth Sporting FC’s Amberley Park with a 7pm kick-off.
