Tootle wins Player of the Season

Full back tops supporters' poll

29 April 2018

The winners of Notts County's end-of-season awards were revealed at a Meadow Lane dinner this evening.

Chairman Alan Hardy, manager Kevin Nolan and the first-team squad were all in attendance, with more than 170 guests enjoying delicious food, a look-back at the season and the presentation of the trophies.

The award winners are as follows:

Having been ruled out for almost a year with a serious knee injury, the skipper used his time away from the field to be a force for good in the local community, representing the club with outstanding professionalism.

Having stepped away from the commentary box at the end of last season, legendary broadcaster Colin Slater - who was also named an honorary vice-president of the club recently - was recognised with a Lifetime Achievement award.

The former Crystal Palace midfielder couldn't have picked a better way to score his first goal in Notts colours, finding the top corner with a long-range screamer against Crewe in front of more than 17,000 supporters to earn himself this year's accolade.

With a total of 18 goals so far this season, Jorge Grant picked up the Golden Boot award. Five ahead of his nearest competitor, Jon Stead, Grant will be hoping to add to his tally between now and the end of the season to ensure he keeps hold of the trophy.

Grant's glut of goals from midfield also earned him the Players' Player award, earning more votes from his team-mates than anyone else in the squad.

A pillar of consistency at right back, a pioneer when it comes to goal celebrations and a loveable character to boot, Matt Tootle staved off stiff competition from a number of his team-mates to win the coveted Supporters' Player of the Season award.
