Charlie's The Champ at End of Season Awards

There was an opportunity for everyone to reflect on Rugby Town's season recently, when players, management, officials and supporters gathered at the Butlin Road hospitality suite for the club's annual presentation ceremony.

The big winner of the evening was 22 year old Charlie Evans, who capped a commendable campaign by picking up four of the main awards.

In addition to topping the players' and supporters' player of the year polls, Evans also secured the Golden Boot for most goals in the season and the Media Star Man award - based on the man of the match nominations published in each week's Rugby Advertiser.

Valley boss Carl Adams went for full-back Keenah Rosser as his choice though, whilst the Vice Presidents picked keeper Matt Hill for their gong.

For the most appearances shield, Hill and Loyiso Recci were level having both only missed out on four starts all year, but Recci claimed the prize due to his better record in league matches.

Town Academy captain Josh Steele was handed the Call-a-Car commitment award in recognition for his breakthrough into the first team squad - which saw him feature in twenty games for them, with volunteers Jean and Digby Berry presented with the Carl Barnes Memorial Shield for their continued efforts towards fundraising activities.

Kitman Mark Cross, Secretary Doug Wilkins and his wife Veronica, Academy Manager Liam O'Neill and photographer Martin Pulley all received club awards for their contributions over the past twelve months.

The Academy awards were also presented at the event, with player of the year trophies going to Jensen Newey (overall), Steele (Under 19's), Jason Moon (ECFA) and Jai Rowe (players'), and Lewis Padmore securing the Academy top goalscorer honour. Club Director Mike Yeats - and MC for the evening - thanked the many club volunteers and sponsors for their ongoing support, and he acknowledged the excellent contribution from the loyal band of fans who follow their team home and away.

Yeats also highlighted the rapid development of the club's academy - which was only established in the summer of 2018, and the continued development of the junior section too.

Both Adams and O'Neill spoke to review their areas of responsibility, with Adams further thanking the Valley faithful and O'Neill commenting on the hard work that had gone into establishing a programme that had seen 48 scholars enrol for its first year - with up to 80 expected to be on-board next time around.
