Midland Football League club Rocester has announced which player has picked up the Supporters’ Player of the Season award for the 2019/20 campaign.
Because fans were not able to vote in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Staffordshire outfit asked fans to select their nomination via an online Twitter poll, which from rounds 1 to 3 received a total of 1,190 votes with 236 people taking part in the final round of voting.
Triumphing with a share of 48.3% of the votes in the final, and thus winner of the coveted club award, was goalkeeper Charlie Wood.
The fan-favourite played a total of 31 games during the 2019/20 campaign as the Romans climbed to 9th in MFL Division 1 before the season was cancelled by the FA due to Covid-19.
A spokesperson for Rocester said: “For someone so young Charlie grew into a man and big things will come for him in a Romans shirt.
“Well done Charlie, we look forward to seeing you again next season!”
Speaking after learning he would be receiving the award, Wood said: “I just want to say thank you to everyone who voted for me, and hopefully we’ll be back playing football soon.”
