Saffron Walden FC celebrated a successful season at their presentation evening on Saturday.

They finished sixth in the Ridgeons League Division One and won the South Midlands Floodlight Cup.

Alex Riches took the supporters' player of the year award with players' player going to Dean Godden.

Tommy Butchart picked up the manager's player of the year, while Spike Bell was young player of the year.

Most improved player was Stuart Kingham, Dave Pledger was the chairman's cup winner and Ben Riches was leading goalscorer.

The ladies held their

presentation the previous week and first team players voted Amie Jones as their most improved player and Lauren Hepburn as players' player of the year.

First team manager Mick Eldred gave his star player award to Andi Wright for her performances this season that also earned her the golden boot, whilst Karen Rulten was the manager's choice for player of the year.

The B team players voted Michelle Smith as their most improved after a string of solid displays in defence, with another defender, Sharon Harrison, also receiving her team-mates' votes for players' player of the year.

Smith also received accolades from her manager, Colin Long, as he awarded her the star player trophy with Julia Cornell walking off with the manager's player award and the golden boot after an impressive season which saw her score the goals that helped the B team maintain their division two league status.

Behind the scenes efforts were also rewarded as Rissa Cahill was voted clubperson of the year.

Additional presentations were made to Peter Rule as the ever-supportive club secretary, to coach Nigel Buckley for his patience in training the players and to the two managers all of whom receive the gratitude of the girls for their efforts.
