ALAN Walker-Harris and Jake Smeeton were the big winners at Dorchester Town end-of-season awards presentation.
Goalkeeper Walker-Harris started the campaign as the Magpies’ second choice stopper and, even though he has had to pick the ball out of his own net a lot more than usual, his performances have still caught the eye.
And not only was he named the Dorset Echo Player of the Year and Online Player of the Year, Walker-Harris received the coveted Player of the Year Award.
Smeeton, who has played in a variety of roles this term, imp-ressed his team-mates enough to warrant the Players’ Player of the Year accolade and Jack Lambert Award for Good Sportsmanship.
Danny Way was the reserve-team’s Players’ Player of the Year award winner, while Luke Woodland picked up the same award in the Under-18s – he also won the Golden Boot for most goals.
Sam Old was Under-18 Man-ager’s Player of the Year and Sam Pashen was Most Promising Youngster of the Year.
The John Rennie Award for Effort went to Darryl Bagwell and Cameron Dabbs was Supporter of the Year.
There were also two cheque presentations to chairman Neal Butterworth who, along with others including first-team boss Phil Simkin, thanked the players, supporters and club officials for their hard work in a testing season at the Avenue.
Cheques for £10,967 and £2,418 were handed over by the Comm-unity Trust and Supporters’ Club respectively.
