A TOTAL of 140 players, managers, parents and club supporters packed into the Furzedown Hotel's new function room for the Great Yarmouth Town FC presentation night, writes Gerry Brown.

Biggest winner of the night was Ross Catchpole who picked up three awards: the Reserve team manager's player of the year, the youth team players' player award and the Aubrey Darmody Memorial Trophy for outstanding young player.

The Simon Scott-Greenard Memorial Trophy for outstanding contribution to the club was won by Stewart Roach for his coaching, his leadership in the first team and his goals for which he also won the Golden Boot as top scorer, narrowly beating last year's winner Jake Reed - who picked up the Fred Smith Memorial Trophy for most promising player.

Other senior winners were: Dominic Smith (first team manager's POY), Craig Roberts (first team players' POY), Martyn Magee (first team supporters' POY), Eddie Short (Reserves players' POY) and Lee Roscoe (Youth players' POY).

The senior trophies were presented by Steward Roach and Paul Tong, with Michael Hilton and Adey Ager performing this duty for the boys' teams.

The club thanked the Furzedown owner Paul Garrod and his staff for an excellent evening, and will be returning to the venue during the coming season with some big names on the menu including John Motson, Peter Shilton and Barry Fry.
