Worksop Town’s quiet and unasuming home grown star Tom Elliott will need a new trophy cabinet.
The young midfielder from Carlton-in-Lindrick walked away with an almost unprecedented five awards at the club’s end of season presentation at the Grafton.
Elliott, 20, is not one for the limelight, but found himself front and centre, accepting the President’s Trophy, Supporters’ Home Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year, Webmaster’s Player of the Year and Tiger Talk Player of the Year awards.
The President’s Trophy is handed to the most improved player each season, while the Webmaster’s award is based on the Man of the Match performances throughout the season, and votes on the Tiger Talk Man of the Match forum are tallied to find a winner of their award.
Elliott came close to a double hat-trick, his performances over the season putting him in the running for the Worksop Guardian Player of the Year gong, won by Tom Burgin.
Goalkeeper Jon Stewart was named the Supporters’ Away Player of the Year, in his absence.
The stopper rejoined the club early on in the season, having left Conference Premier outfit Alfreton Town.
His impressive performances between the sticks, and perhaps even his casual dribbling of the ball past opposition forwards, endeared him further to the fanbase.
Conor Sellars took the club’s Top Goalscorer award thanks to his 23 goals, including some spectacular direct free-kicks.
Supporter of the year went to stalwart Chris Colton, who backs the club home and away despite disability.
And a trio of youngsters, Jack Noble, Luke and Lewis Pickersgill, were also rewarded for their support, despite their tender years.
Tireless dedication to club affairs earned Anne Keep special recognition and flowers, and Suzi Hale of the host pub was also thanked by new club chairman Kevin Keep, for her support during a difficult year.
