Treble winners Moulton Harrox reflected on their best-ever season at their presentation bash on Saturday night.

Moulton are the first-ever team to lift the Peterborough Premier Division, Lincs Junior Cup and PFA Senior Cup in the same season.

They enjoyed a team shot with their trio of trophies before the end-of-season awards were dished out .

Star defender Jonny Clay collected the sought-after players’ player of the year title, while Billy King picked up the manager’s player of the season trophy. There was also a ‘Greatest Achievement’ award for Joe Townsend.

Andy Law finished as leading scorer on 19 – but amazingly eight other players reached double figures.

They were Ian Bradbury (18), Dan Woods (17), Martin Gordon (16), King (13), Bobby Patterson (12), Townsend (12), Tom Gosling (10) and Tom Panton (10).

Harrox played a total of 45 games, winning an incredible 38 and losing just twice. They notched 165 goals in total, shipping only 29.

Their Broad Lane home proved a real fortress, as they went the entire season unbeaten on their own patch – winning 18 out of 21 matches.

Of their 45 games, defensive duo Clay and Patterson were the top appearance makers on 43.

Awards were dished out to players from Moulton Harrox Reserves, too.

Paul Newcombe was players’ player, with Wayne Wilding manager’s player. Aris Placis – who made more appearances than anyone (32) – was named ‘Most Improved Player’, while Joe Harrison (12) was leading scorer.

Club stalwart Ian Beeby also collected a special ‘Long Service’ award.
