Their managers’ player award went to midfielder Robbie Hurworth, who shared the players’ player of the year award with Charlie Smith.

Will Cork-Dove was awarded most improved player with centre-half Chris Hurworth taking the young player accolade.

Joint secretary Chris Warrior’s efforts as joint secretary were rewarded, the full-back was also a runner up in both player of the year categories.

Patterson also provided two signed footballs and a signed Middlesbrough FC pennant that raised £45 in total on the night.
