CHAMPIONS Hatfield Town spread their own player trophies around at the club's annual awards night.

Following a hugely successful season, it was time to reward those who had played their part throughout the 2007-08 campaign.

The first team have recently secured promotion to the Molten Spartan South Midlands League after winning the Herts Senior County League Premier Division championship.

And Town's second string under the guidance of Gary Doctor also won their title in the Herts Senior County League Reserve Division One.

So Saturday's awards night was an ideal opportunity to reward all those who have made this season so successful for Hatfield Town.

Skipper Gary Coley was named the First Team Player's Player of the Year, with midfielder Trevor Golder taking Trevor Lloyd's Manager's Player of the Year.

The Supporters' Player of the Year trophy went to striker Daniel Staples, with defender John McGrandles scooping the Mortgage Centre Player of the Year from the club's main sponsors.

Neil Doctor secured the Hatfield Social Club Player of the Year accolade following an impressive season in a blue shirt, and left winger Lewis Owen was named as Young Player of the Year.

The Reserve Team Manager's Player of the Year went to the prolific Matt Standen.

Darryn Stewart was named the Reserve Player's Player of the Year.

Awards also went to Stuart Arnott, who scooped the A Team Manager's Player of the Year prize, and to Ashley Gordon, who secured the A Team Player's Player of the Year.

To round off the night's awards, promising Hatfield reserve Joe Brandon was also named as the Most Improved Player.

As the club looks towards next season, they will be hoping to keep the strong nucleus of players that have performed so well this time around.
