Richard Froggatt claims all three Player of the Season awards (click to enlarge)2009-10 Presentation Evening - Friday 28th May 2010

Rocester Football Club were grateful to the management and staff of JCB's Lakeside Club on Friday after their annual presentation night had been thrown into doubt by flooding earlier in the day.

The clubhouse at Hillsfield, where the presentations were due to have taken place, was damaged by flooding from a water leak in the roof, but fortunately the Lakeside Club was able to host the event at short notice.

Romans Chairman Harold Brassington opened the proceedings by thanking all the people who have helped behind the scenes during the season, and he then introduced Phil Webster, from the Romans' main sponsors Hill & Webster Ltd, to present the first award of the evening.

This went to striker Chris Sterling, who netted ten goals in just 18 appearances to claim the top scorer's 'Golden Boot' trophy.

Darren McGirr, representing the supporters group 'The Massive' was then called upon to present the Supporters' Player of the Season to Richard Froggatt, and moments later the popular goalkeeper was back on the stage to collect his second award of the evening - the Players' Player of the Season - which was handed to him by team captain Darren Bullock.

Manager Dave Langston then took the microphone to thank his backroom staff, and he paid tribute to all the players who turned Rocester's fortunes around so dramatically in the second half of the campaign before speaking of his hopes for next season, when he expects his team to make further progress.

Langston finished his speech by announcing the Managers' Player of the Season, and it was no surprise to see Richard Froggatt complete a clean sweep by collecting his third award of the night.

Froggatt, who has now made more than 150 appearances for the Romans, said "I can't believe it, I never expected that!"

"For me personally it's been a difficult season at times, but playing football has been a great release and I'd like to thank everyone for their support - it means a lot to me."
