With another campaign drawing to a close, Sunday night saw all clubs in the East, West & Premier Divisions come together to celebrate the outstanding performers in the 2018/19 season.
The first major award of the night saw top goalscorer Joe Lumsden just miss out on the Evo-Stik League NPL Show Supporters Award to Radcliffe FC’s Tunde Owolabi. Finishing runner-up is still a tremendous achievement for Albion’s marksman who is currently on 23 goals for the season.
Next on the agenda was the Evo-Stik East Team of the Season which is voted by the management of each club. Taddy saw two players named in the eleven; defender Harry Coates and striker Joe Lumsden were both named in their debut seasons at the club. Only two clubs had two players make the vote; Morpeth Town and Tadcaster Albion.

Harrison Foulkes (GK) – Pickering Town
