Rovers presented it's three end of season awards to the players, as voted for by supporters, management and the players themselves.
Up first was the Supporters Player of the Year, already known as the award was presented at the final home game of the season. Presenting the 'Micky Elks Trophy' was John Marshall, an avid Rovers supporter and a beating heart of support on the terraces at the club. The award was presented to goalkeeper Adam Seal, who maintained very consistent performances throughout the season between the sticks.
The next award to be presented was the Managers Player of the Year. A tough one for the management team of Dan Trenkel and Gary Ansell. A few were possibly up for the award, Adam Seal, James Pugsley, Tom Ranger, John Bradley, Jay Nash, all of whom had good seasons for the club. Suffice to say, Dan and Gary decided that Jay Nash, Rovers first player to have scored more than 20 goals in a season for some time, to be presented with their award for the this season.
Jay's goals this season were vital for Rovers challenge of retaining their Ryman League status and he now holds a Rovers record for the highest number of games scored in consecutively (9).
Finally, the players themselves had an independent vote, organised by the management team, and the player to pick up their accolades was young midfielder Tom Ranger. Tom's first season at the club was also his first venture out into the Ryman League level and he has brought a breath of fresh air to the club. His energetic efforts from the centre of the park and his 'Frank Lampardesque' marauding forward runs also ensured he was amongst the goals this season. Tom was presented the Players Player of the Year award by Rovers Club Captain, Lewis Sparrow.
