Kevin Morris named Mawnan first team’s player of the season
10:58am Thursday 27th May 2010 in Cornwall Sport
ALTHOUGH the football season is not quite over for Mawnan Football Club - there are still games to play - the club held its annual “Oscars” with a well-attended annual end-of-season presentation evening at the Green Lawns Hotel, Falmouth, on Friday.
Club sponsor Adam Smith of Maenporth Electrical attended as a guest along with Alison Robertson and son Daniel who were making the first presentation of the Dickie Robertson Memorial Cup.
The Dickie Robertson cup presentation was a rare occasion because it was the first time in many years that was a new cup to be won.
The player-of-the-match trophy was presented to the club at the start of the season by Alison Robertson in memory of her late husband Dickie, a former player and manager of the club, and was up for grabs for both first and second team players.
The player of the match trophy was awarded weekly, with the winner at the end of the season being the player with highest overall number of man of the match awards. That accolade went, by a narrow margin, to Kevin Morris, but there was no disputing who the first team thought was their top player with Kevin a convincing winner to lay claim to the Ron Sara trophy.
The second team player of the year and winner of the Stan Jackson Cup proved to be more competitive with three players jointly coming out on top. The trio who will share the trophy are Paul Fernihough, Dan Thomas and Lewis Johnson.
The W C Rowe young player of the year trophy was picked up by Lewis Johnson, who proved himself to be a fine young player in the making and a deserved winner.
The second team managerial duo of Andy Anear and Ian Ferguson awarded their player of the year trophy to Paul Caunter and Gregg Renfree’s first team player of the year went to Dan Buckingham.
The “Old Gits” award was claimed by Ryan Whitbread and the John Christophers Clubman of the Year trophy went to Paul Smith for the tremendous amount of work he does on behalf of the club both on and off the pitch.
The skippers of both teams, Damian Stevens and Paul Fernihough, handed out gifts to several people after expressing their thanks to all those who had contributed towards the running of the club.
