KYLE HUTTON has been named as Sonstrust player of the year for season 2019/20 – one of three awards he won at the annual awards ceremony, which was conducted virtually.
After a hugely consistent season, the midfielder was also named as players’ player of the year and Sons View player of the year.
The young player of the year went to Rico Quitongo, and the Trust Travel player of the year to Morgyn Neill. Like the main player of the year award, those two have been voted by the fans in recent days.
Completing the awards line-up were two other prizes, the outcome of which were known before the ceremony.
Isaac Layne was top goalscorer with nine goals, while Reghan Tumilty won the goal of the season vote conducted on the club’s official Twitter.
Sadly, the annual awards bash, a fixture in the calendar for well over a decade, could not take place this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, a hardworking team of supporters ensured that it could take place virtually, and it was broadcast on the club’s Facebook page this evening.
Trust secretary Jack Brough said: “It’s a real shame about the ceremony not being able to take place in person, but these are unprecedented times.
“There was no way, however, that we could not let our players’ efforts this season go unrecognised, and congratulations to all the winners.
“Thanks to all the fans who voted this week as well – your decisions ensured the awards went to the players they did.
“Fingers crossed we will be able to resume the annual awards night in its full form in 2021.”
Reaction from the awards ceremony will follow.
