NIALL Thompson has been named Truro City’s Player of the Season after winning a supporters poll.

The 26-year-old winger fought off stern competition from team-mate Ryan Law to win the coveted award, receiving 551 of the 1,234 votes cast.

He was run extremely close by Law, who received just 11 fewer votes to claim second place.

The other four nominees; Tyler Harvey, Jamie Richards, James Hamon and Will Dean, were trailing in the duo’s wake, with Harvey taking third spot.

Former Torquay United man Niall scored three goals in 27 appearances for the White Tigers last season.

Thompson spoke of his pride at winning the award on Twitter, saying: “Honoured to be named Player of the Season. Thanks to Truro City and all of the people who voted. Can’t wait for next season.”

Will Dean was picked by his fellow teammates as the Players’ Player of the Year after the midfielder enjoyed an excellent season in the middle of the park.

Eighteen-year-old Will joined the White Tigers on a six-month loan deal from Sky Bet League Two side Exeter City in the summer of 2019 and made 28 appearances for City.

Law claimed the Young Player of the Season award, claiming 48.36 per cent of the vote after winning 162 of the 335 votes cast.

George Tucker was some way off in second place, with his 28 votes just one higher than third-placed Luke Jephcott.

Plymouth Argyle loanee Law also collected the Goal of the Season award for his last-minute strike into the bottom corner from the edge of the box to rescue a 3-3 draw at home to Poole Town in October 2019.

He also took second place in that award for his strike against Hereford in the FA Cup in September 2019, while Ryan Dickson’s header against Weston-Super-Mare on New Year’s Day took third spot.

Law posted a short video to the club’s supporters on Twitter shortly after winning the award, saying: “I just want to say thank you for voting for me for Player of the Season and for the Goal of the Season.

"I’m a bit gutted about the season [being declared void] but hopefully it’ll all go back to normal soon. Stay safe and I’ll see you soon.”
