Sears Wins Town Goal of the Season
Wednesday, 8th May 2019 09:43

Freddie Sears’s goal at Aston Villa in January was named the Town Goal of the Season at last night’s End-of-Season Dinner at Milsoms, Kesgrave Hall.

Sears lashed home from the edge of the box after a well-worked passing move from deep in the Blues’ own half.

The goal pulled the scoreline back to 2-1 but Town, who were denied a very strong shout for a penalty, were unable to take a point from the game.

Sears subsequently joined Town’s long injury list when he suffered a ACL injury at Norwich.

Also among the awards handed out last night was the Young Player of the Year gong which went to Jack Lankester.

Skipper Luke Chambers won the Corporate Customers’ Player of the Season, while tribute was also paid to the central defender’s all-round contribution to Town both on and off the pitch. Chambers was named the Supporters Player of the Year at last month’s Player Awards Evening.

Cole Skuse was named Town's PFA Community Champion having been involved in a number of projects during the season.

The fans were also lauded with 10 supporters guests of the club at the event, among them Phil Taylor, who recently celebrated 25 years without missing a Town fixture home or away, to whom a presentation was made.

“It was a nice gesture from the club and a great night,” he told the club site. “I’d also like to thank all those involved in organising my presentation. It was very much appreciated.”

Manager Paul Lambert spoke from the stage with host Terry Butcher, as did academy coaches Gerard Nash and Chris Hogg, whose U23s side topped Professional Development League Two, and U18s coach Adem Atay, whose team finished second in their equivalent division.

No Players' Player or Manager's Choice awards were given out this season.

25 years without missing a home & away fixture, that man deserves some serious reward by the club.

Phil Taylor you must be mental! he deserves a free season ticket for life for the support and money he's invested over the past 25 years.

25 years following Town home and away, and yet i've never once seen Phil The Power in the terraces.

Personally I think the goal should have been Dozzell's from Sunday (unless that wasn't in the vote) and Chalobah for player of the season, but well done those who won awards.

25 years not missing a game is an amazing accomplishment and it is great to see Mr Taylor's effort being acknowledged. This past season must have been very trying for him. I salute him.

Hmm. Strange one this. To me that goal looked like a scuffed shot? All the same well done Freddie, but improvement on your goal tally will be needed next season, or our patience may run out mate

To be fair they didn't have a lot of goals to choose from

Surely Downes or Kenlock deserved Young Player of the Season.

Lankester was great, but only played for a short period really

I really do hate to say it, but, Phil, when it comes to the TWTD Questionnaire, could we please have "No One" as an option for Player of the Year? It's been too grim a year to hand out prizes.

well done Freddie .

“Lashed home from the edge of the box”?!?!? Get your glasses on Phil! That beauty was at least 25 yards out!

ohmycampo added 15:56 - May 8
A lucky hit, we need more than that next season. Coyb

Ohmycampo when he’s played through the middle he’ll score goals out wide he won’t simple as that it’s not his fault he’s played out of position. When he first came he scored 9 goals in 22 games through the middle.
