GOALKEEPER Chris Weale scooped a hat-trick of awards at the Dorchester Town end-of-season presentation evening at the Avenue Stadium.

Weale, a former Leicester City gloveman, won the manager’s, players’ and supporters’ player-of-the-year awards after a superb season in which he pulled off a number of crucial saves.

The only blot on the veteran’s copybook came in a 1-1 draw with Chesham, when he was sent off after 10 minutes – right-back Kyle Egan rescuing a point for the Magpies deep into stoppage-time.

Weale was a near ever-present in the Magpies’ line-up and kept 11 clean sheets in 49 competitive appearances for the county town side.

Egan himself received two awards, the defender having notched his 50th career appearance for the club during a season in which he netted three goals.

The teenager collected the Dorset Echo player of the season and the Jack Lambert award for sportsmanship.

Online player of the year was given to Luke Winsper, while Ben Morris was named Magpies’ reserve team player of the year.

Arguably Morris’ finest moment came in the John Stimpson Memorial Trophy when a stunning volley helped Rich Robson’s men to a 2-0 semi-final win over Salisbury Development.

Other award winners were Antonio Diaz (April player-of-the-month), Neil Martin (John Rennie award), Tom Berry (supporter of the year), Fin Barge (young supporter of the year), Harold Gill (Dinky Curtis award) and Sam Bernard, who was given the clubman of the year award.
