Budleigh Salterton Football Club held their end of season men's and women's teams Presentation Evening at their Greenway Lane Clubhouse, writes SpursTom.

Club chairman Peter Savage presented the club's two main awards as follows; before the football teams took over the stage.

The Knowle Garage Service to Football Award was presented to the popular Dan Carthew who managed the Robinettes to the Westward Developments Devon Women's Football League Division One title.

In terms of individual awards, the main one, that of Club Person of the Year, went to the richly deserving Keith Wood who not only did the main club secretarial duties, but also took on looking after the admin side of the football following Richard Tapps departure.

Moving on to the game of football, the club must be very grateful to their women's team.

Not only were the ladies the one club team to land silverware in the playing season, but they turned up to the presentation in full force, compared to those in attendance from the men's squads.

Players' Player - Emma (Hayley) Worsley

Top Goal Scorer - Amy Salter

Retiring goalkeeper Katherine Binmore was presented with a traditional goalkeeper's green jersey signed by the players and managerial team. It was also announced that an annual trophy will be named in her honour.

Numbers from the men's first and second teams attending the evening was quite low, and possibly a true reflection on how poor results were throughout the season.

Players' Player - Ross James

Top Goal Scorer - Johnnie Hitchcock.

Very disappointingly there were only six from the reserves team squad, but those who have been with them throughout the season, believe the stay-away stems from a frustrating campaign.

Though there was no speeches made nor trophies presented, the votes went to these as award winners.
