It’s that time of year again when you reflect on the past season and for Farsley a disappointing season in the end. Yes it’s the Farsley AFC and academy/development squad presentation evening.
The first award of the evening was the Farsley development squad managers player of the year. This went to goalkeeper Thomas Noden who was in his first year with the academy and made a great impression to the coaches in training sessions and matches, managing to keep one clean sheet. The second award was the Farsley academy squad managers player of the year and this went to Bradley Spencer who won three man of the match awards as well as scoring four goals from defence which was really impressive. We then moved onto a First team award, the managers player of the year, and this went to Aiden Savory, Farsley’s top scorer with 18 goals this season therefore winning the top scorer award as well.
We then moved onto the players player of the years awards, the most prestigious awards to win as your efforts have been recognised by your teammates. For the academy team this went to Kyle Hancock who made his first team debut towards the end of the season. For the development squad it went to Dylan Prust and for the first team it went to Farsley’s Mr. Consistency Ryan Serrant who has been a key player for many years and this season stepped it up another level, to be included in the league’s representative side. Ryan also came second in the supporters player of the year ahead of Gibraltan international Adam Priestley and Matt Dempsey who were tied for third place. The winner though was Paddy Miller who, in his first season for the club, was hugely impressive in defence, winning every header and taking quality set-pieces.
The final award of the season was the Dominic Fleming award, named in honour of a lifetime Farsley fan who sadly passed away earlier in the season. This was for a player who had set an example off the pitch and gone out of their way to be helpful. This award went to Matt Dempsey who then went over to have a word with Dominic Flemings daughter, a really nice gesture which shows why he won the award.
It was a good night, with good food and good entertainment with Ryan Serrant and Aiden Savory having the most successful evenings.
