Chris Clements and Cheyenne Dunkley finished their season’s on a personal high note, winning the major awards at Hednesford Town Football Club’s Presentation Evening at Keys Park on Friday night as former player, Ashley Williams, now regarded as a top quality Premier League defender, returned to his old club as a special guest.
The Swansea and Wales player, who spent two years at Hednesford after being released from West Bromwich Albion as a youngster, presented the victorious Hednesford Town Youth Team with their Midland Floodlit Youth League Northern Division winners medals and trophy.
Club Secretary Terry McMahon wished to thank both the supporters, players and Williams for their attendance on a night which also saw the volunteers behind the scenes at Keys Park given deserved recognition.
‘It was a pleasure to see such a strong turnout of supporters and players alike to celebrate another successful season for the club and also gave everyone the opportunity to recognise work done at Keys Park by the people in the commercial office, boardroom, kitchen and bar which is invaluable.’
Chris Clements picked up the Travel Club and Supporters Player of the Year Awards and Goal of the Season for his sumptuous strike against eventual champions Chester and Cheyenne Dunkley received the Supporters Association, Manager’s and Player’s Player of the Season trophies, completing a successful night for two players who have been strongly linked to moves into the Football League in the near future.
The Supporters Association also recognised Dave Shaw and Chris Brewerton as Fans of they Year for work done as Historian and Press Officer respectively and Joint-Chairman Scott Smith was keen to thank all those people involved throughout the season.
‘The SA, Club and Youth Team are run by the tireless work of a large number of individuals who put in a lot of hours to complete another exciting season. The appearance by Ashley Williams was a great part of the event and the Youth Team deserved to meet a very well known ex-Pitman.’
