Thankfully COVID had not intervened in the completion of the 2020/21 season so for the first time for three years the traditional end-of-season Awards Evening was held at St Neots Town last Friday hosted by Chairman Barry Cavilla. There was a hog roast, and more than 80 players, officials and supporters were in attendance. The Chairman paid a warm tribute to the vital volunteer base of the club without which it could not function, and multiple awards were made to those who have kept the club running through very difficult times. These included those persons responsible for match day hospitality, club administration, kit laundry, groundskeeping, the Clubman of the Year Award, and the Senior Team backroom staff. There was also a special award for Club Secretary, Gary Wilson

President John Walker listed the statistics relating to the playing record of both the Senior and U18 side singling out special mention for Alex Minall’s U18 side who had lifted their league championship for the FOURTH consecutive completed season. In a topsy-turvy season that had seen the Senior side as high as third and as low as fourteenth in the league table, he noted that a tenth placed finish in the Southern League Central Division was remarkable given the mid-season slump in results principally caused by injuries and COVID.

The U18 side awards announced by Manager Alex Minall were as follows:

Players’ Player of the Year:                Julinho Gomes (also leading scorer)

Managers Player of the Year:             Charlie Clark

The Senior side awards were announced by Manager Pete Gill completing his first season in charge:

Leading Scorer:                       Joe Rider (19 goals in just 22 matches)

The remaining three awards (Managers Player of the Year, Players Player of the Year, and Supporters Player of the Year) all went to club skipper Lee Watkins who completed a rare sweep of the top three awards.

The lively Supporters Club retiring representative Phil Loudon announcing the Supporters award for Lee Watkins, was presented with a personal commemorative memento as he announced his retirement due to his relocation back to his native Noerth-East.
