Stockton Town recently held their 1st Team presentation evening after another successful Wearside League campaign that saw the Club win the Wearside League for the 4th consecutive season and the Monkwearmouth Cup and the Wearside League Cup for the second year running. This also led to the Club’s promotion to the Northern League for the 2016/17 season. The Award winners for last season are;
Players Player of the Year
Voted for by the fellow players it is seen by many as the prestigious award of those given out and this years winner was forward Chris Stockton. “Stocko” had an inspired season and as most of know he terrified some teams with was pace and skill. Added to this Chris also had his best season in front of goal which ultimately helped the Club to promotion to the Northern League, a thoroughly deserved award for a player who is Stockton Town through and through having come up from the Clubs junior teams.
Players Player of the Year for Season 2015/16 – Chris Stockton.
Managers Player of the Year Award
An outstanding season saw Matthew Garbutt collect the Managers Player off Team Manager Michael Dunwell. “Garbo” played most of the season at right back but such is his ability he was also used in centre midfield and as a wide forward. The stand out memory from “Garbos” season has to be his contribution to our amazing injury time victory at Harton & Westoe. Going into injury time 3 2 down to win 4 3 with Matty firing in the winning goal. Another award richly deserved for another player who came through our junior ranks.

Stockton Town’s Golden Boot Winner
To wrestle this award off Kallum Hannah is some achievement so all credit to Tony Johnson who finished the season as the Club’s leading goalscorer, an Award he won previously in the 2011/12 season. This achieved after being out injured for over 6 months with a serious back injury tells you all you need to know about Tony Johnson. Tony’s total for the season was 33 goals and Tony is another player who has progressed from our junior teams to star for the 1st team.

Young Player of the Year
This is awarded to any player who is still a teenager at the start of the Season and has represented the Club at 1st Team level. The Award is chosen by the 1st Team Management and this years winner is Joe Scaife Wheatley.Having moved up from last years U18’s Joe really grabbed his chance in the second half of the season with some inspired displays and great goals. As Joe grew into the season he became one of the first names on the team sheet each week and we are all looking forward to see Joe progress further next season.

This Award was presented for the first time ever at the end of the 2013/14 Season in recognition of the ever growing band of regular supporters we were attracting as a Club to our games both at home and away.
