CHARLIE Clough and Neil Martin were the big winners at the Wessex Royale Hotel as Dorchester Town celebrated a momentous campaign at the club’s annual end-of-season awards evening.

Clough, who picked up the Dorset Echo player of the year gong before the 2-1 victory over Weston-super-Mare on Saturday, was then voted by the supporters as their player of the year following a superb season in the Blue Square Bet South.

The former Bristol Rovers star bagged 10 league goals and demonstrated his versatility by playing as both a centre half and an attacking midfielder-cum-striker when injuries took their toll on the squad.

Martin also performed equally well either at left back or in midfield and it was in his more forward role that he helped set-up numerous goals and chances for his team-mates.

His displays throughout the season were recognised by his peers as he received the players’ player of the year award at Saturday night’s event.

That wasn’t the end of the award giving and a few more Magpies’ players received accolades.

The win over Farnborough in March saw Jamie Gleeson make his 300th appearance for the club and that achievement was marked with the midfielder picking up the Dinky Curtis award for outstanding ser-vice.

And Ben Watson’s superb season in front of goal – 15 strikes in the league and 17 overall – didn’t go unnoticed as he received the Jack Lambert award for good sportsman-ship from Football Conference chairman Brian Lee.

The most promising youth player award went to Tom Oliver while, off the pitch, the hard work of Kate Taylor was recognised as she won the clubperson of the year award.

Gleeson and Jake Smeeton were also named the club’s players of the month for March and April respectively.
