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.

Is Lambo Playing Fantasy Football? by ElephantintheRoom
Many older supporters who know nothing and care even less about computer-based football games have a passing interest in fantasy football.

The season is over, the Lambert love-in has cooled and the dust is just about settling on the season ticket hype.
Where Might This Lead? by Moggasknockdown
As we draw stumps on the darkest season in the club’s recent history, it is hard not to reflect on Paul Lambert's efforts to revive our listing club with at least a degree of optimism for the future.
Fanstastic by LegendRay
There was quite a groundswell of opinion that no annual awards should have been given after a season like that. Except perhaps for one award that doesn’t have a category… the award for the supporters!

My grandma claimed to know nothing about football. "Oh, I'll leave you men to talk about the football", she'd say, but she knew alright. She knew exactly what was going on with the Town.
