Awards: Rawlinson voted Player of the Season

Defender tops fans' list and shares players' award

21 August 2020

Supporters have voted Connell Rawlinson as their 2019-20 Player of the Season and he has also earned recognition from his peers.

The big defender was one of many new signings last summer ahead of our charge to the National League play-off final and FA Trophy semis.

And he saw off strong competition from a number of his team-mates to claim 40% of the supporters' vote, capping his debut season with a memorable award.

Rawlinson will also share the Players' Player of the Season award with Kyle Wootton after the pair received the equal-highest number of votes from the squad.

Michael Doyle, perhaps unsurprisingly, scooped the Goal of the Season award for his incredible late winner against Dagenham in the Trophy, while Sam Osborne picked up our Official Supporters' Association's Young Player of the Season award following a promising campaign in which he scored screamers against Boreham Wood and Maidenhead.

Rounding off this year's winners was club Hall of Famer Les Bradd, whose continued outstanding work alongside FITC, as well as his tremendous efforts in calling the vulnerable and elderly during the coronavirus lockdown, earned him the Community Champion award.

Winners will be presented with their trophies following the commencement of pre-season training.

Our 2019-20 awards were delivered in partnership with title sponsors Nottingham City Business Club.

Founded in 1924, Nottingham City Business Club is the oldest of its kind outside London, with members drawn from all sectors and sizes of commercial enterprise.

The aims of the club have remained the same throughout its history: to promote and discuss all matters pertaining to the business and social interests of members, and to hold lunches to which prominent guests are invited to speak on matters of commercial interest.

The club recognises the value that sport can bring to our community, particularly in these challenging times, and Nottingham City Business Club are therefore pleased to support the football club's end-of-season awards and recognises not only the work being carried by the new owners to take the club forward but also the outstanding work being carried out by its Football in the Community charity to the benefit of people in Nottingham.
