Cambridge players scoop top regional awards

posted in: Awards, Men, News, Northern League

Cambridge players have taken two of the region’s highest-profile awards for their efforts during the 2017 season.

First team captain Patrick Woodlock has been named Player of the Year for the Loaded WaiBOP Premiership and midfielder Levi Clark has taken the same award for the WaiBOP Championship.

The awards were based on public votes and WaiBOP Football says “voting numbers were huge.”

The WaiBOP announcement also confirmed that Cambridge’s Donovan Latham (pictured) is currently in line for the Premiership’s Golden Boot but his tally of 20 goals could still be challenged as the competition has several games still to play.

He also won the WaiBOP Player of the Year award in 2015, the last time his side took the regional title.

He has been named Cambridge’s Player of the Year a record five times.

For Levi Clark, his Player of the Year award caps an excellent season in which he has helped his side win the WaiBOP Championship, playing in central midfield.

The 16-year-old has also been part of the club’s youth teams that won the Federation’s U-15 and U-17 competitions in 2014 and 2015.

Clark scored five times for the Championship side but also grabbed a couple of goals for the Reds in the WaiBOP Premiership.

He was also a member of the Hamilton Boys’ High School team that won this year’s national schools tournament.

Striker Latham has been part of a potent attacking line-up in the club’s first team this year, with the side scoring 105 goals in all competitions.
