After finishing eighth on their return to the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division this season, Saffron Walden Town dished out some worthy awards at the club’s annual presentation evening on Saturday.

Spike Bell received the Manager’s Player of the Year award while top scorer James Thomas scooped both the Players’ and Supporters’ Player of the Year prizes.

The reserves’ Player of the Year awards were shared out between Coby Game (manager’s), Ryan Dewey (players’) and Ben Morrell (supporters’).

Jack Young was named U18’s Manager’s Player of the Year.

Chairman Martin Johnson said: “It was a well-attended event with everyone celebrating a great year for the club at all three levels.

“The club would like to thank the sponsors for providing permanent trophies for the winners and everyone who helped on the evening.”

Town also handed first-team kitman Dave Orley and former chairman Melvyn Seymour the title of honorary life presidents at the club after many years of service.
