Under-18 player Joe Cunning scooped a hat-trick of awards at Saffron Walden Town's end of season presentation evening.
As well as winning the players’ player and fans’ player of the year prizes, Cunning took home an outstanding achievement award for his incredible progress from the under-18s and reserves to the first team in the last month of the season.
Goalkeeper Neil O’Sullivan also scooped an awards treble, winning the first team’s players’ player, fans’ player and manager’s player of the year prizes.
Local man O’Sullivan joined the Bloods from Bury at the start of the season and put in a string of brilliant performances in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division.
Tom Pluck was named the under-18 manager’s player of the year, while Liam Moir won the reserve team manager’s player of the year award.
Charlie Dicker was the reserves players’ player of the year, as Coby Game took the fans’ award.
Ada Clark was presented with the Blood of the Year prize, while Dan Trendall picked up an outstanding achievement award.
Chairman Jonathan Scripps said: “Overall the season has been great and the Bloods have seen some players really progress through the ranks. The reserve team took home the silverware and won the Chell Trophy.
“Pitch renovations began on Monday as the Bloods prepare for next season. The club are eagerly waiting to see what league they will be in out of the current Thurlow Nunn League and the Essex Senior League. The FA are currently restructuring all step five and six level clubs across the country.”
Saffron Walden Town’s AGM will be held on July 3 (8pm) and they are always looking for potential new board members who feel they could make a difference to the club.
