Westwood is Town’s top man

KIEREN Westwood completed an excellent debut season with Stratford Town by collecting two Player of the Season awards.

The left back, who joined from Leamington early in the campaign, was presented with the Manager’s and Players’ Player of the season prizes in the end-of-season ceremony at the Falcon Hotel in Stratford.

Westwood, whose consistency has made him a firm favourite with Town, made 40 appearances in league and cup, scoring four goals.

Ultra-reliable goalkeeper Andy Kemp claimed his third Supporters’ Player of the Season accolade in a row.

The former Bedworth United keeper, who joined in 2013, has been the bedrock of Town’s rise to the Southern League Premier Division.

Midfielder Michael McGrath, another newcomer signed by manager Carl Adams from Rushall Olympic in October, took another Player of the Season honour.

Striker Richard Gregory won the Top Goalscorer award, having netted a hat-trick in the final game of the season against Cambridge City to reach 14 and pip Edwin Ahenkorah and Jamie Sheldon, who had 11 each.

Meanwhile, Town’s youth team completed a memorable season with silverware.

The Under 18s secured the Midland Floodlit Youth League’s League Cup by defeating Oadby Town 2-0 on Wednesday night.

The team, who finish their season at home to Studley on Monday, are also guaranteed to finish runners-up in Premier Division South.

The youth team will be holding trials for the squad for the 2016/17 season on Sunday and next Sunday (May 15) from 10am to noon at the DCS Stadium. For further information, e-mail [email protected].
