Both the men’s and ladies’ team individual awards were handed out and it proved to be a great night for Ottery vice captain Chris Ambrose who was crowned both Manager’s Player of the Year and the Players’ Player of the Year.

The men’s team leading scorer award was presented to James Gosney.

For the ladies, who completed their first season as a team, the Manager’s Player of the Year was presented by team boss, and club chairman, Mike Ringer, to Holly Daly.

The ladies’ team Players’ Player award was won by Georgia Chapman and Louise Ilsley went home with the leading scorer honour.
