Bury Town held their 2018-19 Presentation Evening on Friday at the Denny Bros Stadium and a packed clubhouse saw the awards handed out to this season's winner.
The Under 18's finished 4th in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League South Division and their awards were distributed by manager Mark Jolland as follows:
[b]Young Player of the Season (First Year players only) - Amin Mohammed
Players Player of the Season - Charlie Cook
Managers Player of the Season - Ethan Heap
The newly formed Under 23's side sponsored by F.A Valiant & Sons Ltd had an excellent season under the guidance of Bradley Barber and John Kennedy, finishing 4th in the North Division and the award winners were:
Supporters Player of the Season - George Bugg
Players Player of the Season - Emmanuel Machaya
Managers Player of the Season - Emmanuel Machaya
There were also presentations made to Under 23's secretary Christine Powell by Bradley and John as a thank you for hard work in managing the administration of the team, and there was also a presentation made by the players to Bradley and John for their management of the side.
The First Team awards were eagerly anticipated and were handed out by Glenn Edwards, owner of First Stop Travel, the main sponsors of Bury Town FC and First Team manager Ben Chenery and the winners were selected as follows:
Supporters Player of the Season - Ollie Hughes
Players Player of the Season - Ollie Hughes
Managers Player of the Season - Ryan Horne
Dave Longman Away Fans Player of the Season - Jake Chambers Shaw
For the 4th season in a row, Ollie Hughes scooped the main award of the evening, the Supporters award, and he was also voted Players player by his teammates. Ryan Horne in his first season with the Blues was selected as Managers player by Ben Chenery and a new award was created this season in tribute to Dave Longman, a loyal fan from Welwyn Garden City who passed away last season aged 36. The votes were made by the travelling Bury supporters at each away fixture and the award was presented by Dave's brother James in his memory. A big thank you to Kerry Jones who managed the award and voting.
The final presentations were the Garry Barker award in memory of former Club Director and Youth Section Secretary for outstanding contributions to the Youth Section and Time Gleeve was awarded this honour as Registrations Secretary and also as a Coach. The final award was the Unsung Hero award and this went to Chantelle Dodd for her hard work behind the bar at all club fixtures.
We would like to congratulate all the winners and thank all the supporters for their attendance.
