Cambridge FC senior players, coaches, managers and administrators have celebrated the end of the 2019 senior football season with the club’s annual prizegiving event.
Held at the clubrooms at John Kerkhof Park, attendees recognised the efforts of many while enjoying a meal prepared by D1’s veteran player Jim Thomassen.
Strikers fared well on the night with first team forward Josh Clarkin named Men’s Club Player of the Year, as well as picking up a re-instated trophy for the top scorer in the club’s Northern League first team games.
WaiBOP Championship skipper and striker Adam Brady took the Men’s Golden Boot (with 17 goals for the season) as well as his team’s Coach’s Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.
The Women’s Club Player of the Year was Kym Thomasen – one of seven women’s players to walk away with awards.
Club Personality of the Year was won by D1s coach and senior club captain Harry Bomans for the second year in a row.
Club Person of the Year was club secretary Josh Easby.
Club Supporters of the Year awards were made to Vigour Physiotherapy’s Clarke McKenzie, a key sponsor of the club and physio for the Northern League squads, and veteran D1 player Jim Thomassen for his all-round willingness to volunteer for work at the club.
Our club thanks president Peter Martens, chairman Steve Thomas, chef-for-the-evening Jim Thomassen, barmen Craig and Daniel Clark, and sounds system provider Richard Crafts for making the event possible.
