Academy celebrate successful season at Awards Evening

29 May 2018

Town's category three academy – which has been running for two years – hosted their awards evening at Highbury Stadium on Friday night. The academy has over 120 players ranging from under 9s to under 16s and it is an academy that is growing year on year.

It has been 12 months to remember with goalkeeper Billy Crellin playing for England's U17s and U18s, as well as lifting the Under 17s FIFA World Cup. Three academy graduates have been involved in first team squads this season, and attacking winger Dan Mooney has represented Wales after an impressive season on loan.

Joey Newson, Academy Secretary, spoke after the event and would like to thank everybody for their hard efforts over the last 12 months.

“I’d like to give a special thanks to staff, the parents and players. I would also like to say a huge thank you to our sponsor PIB for the season, and for sponsoring two awards on the night, the Academy Player and the Academy Coach of the Year.

“It was a brilliant night for our first event and it was a really good opportunity for us as an academy to come together, and celebrate all the achievements from the players and the staff.

“This year has been successful and the night showcased the excellent play through videos and pictures, and to give those hope of winning the awards next season.

“We'd like to congratulate all the lads who have been offered scholarships for next season, and I hope it makes people push themselves further going forward."

On the night, a number of awards were given out and below are all of the winners. Congratulations to all.
