Scarborough Athletic celebrated a fine all-round season on Friday night at The Spa.

Players from the first team down to the under-12s were honoured for their performances in the 2013-14 campaign.

Top-scorer Gary Bradshaw picked up the players’ player award to go with his Scarborough News player of the year trophy.

Chris Bolder also collected some silverware when he was awarded the manager’s player of the year, while Ben Middleton won the most improved player.

Boss Rudy Funk said: “Gary was the perfect signing for us this season. He is a great pro and he has scored goals - you can’t ask for anymore.

“Chris is another super professional, who is a delight to work with.

“You never get any complaints from Chris, you just get hard work.

“When Ben arrived at our club he was a boy and now he is developing into a good player, as long as he keeps his feet on the ground.

“He just goes to show that younger players can progress into the first team. He was an unknown quantity, but now he has got his feet firmly under the table.

“It shows the players in the younger age-groups at the club that they will be given a chance.”
