DORCHESTER Tigers have been presented with their Dorset Under-15s League Division Two title at the Avenue.

The Tigers were presented with the league trophy and their winners’ medals by league secretary Trevor Selby. As well as receiving league honours, manager Colin Mead also presented goalkeeper Andrew Ennals with the manager’s player of the year award.

Ennals produced a fantastic season between the sticks, which included keeping seven clean sheets and saving four penalties in the Dorset Cup semi-final.

Assistant coaches Ian Surcouf and Mead thanked all 18 players for playing enjoyable football, committing in training, showing a positive attitude and for their fair play.

The coaches’ player of the year award went to central defender Tom Mead, who often led the team’s attacking play from the back, and played a big part in ensuring that the Tigers had the best defensive record in the league, after only conceding 12 goals.

Toby Pitman was also given the prize for most improved player, the left-midfielder worked very hard in training and on match days with his attacking wing play, which created many chan-ces throughout the season.

Meanwhile, hot-shot Casey Graham, who scored a staggering 17 goals in 14 matches in his first full season with the Tigers, claimed the top scorer crown.

There was also a special prize for Billy Evans, as the best young achiever in Dorchester Town Football Club’s youth system. He scooped the Lions Club Fred Bloomfield Trophy.

Evans illustrated total dedication and commitment, as well as a positive attitude towards his team-mates and mentors.
