Keiran also received three other awards on the night, starting with the Woking News & Mail Player of the Season, the Cards Trust Player of the Season presented by Trust chairman Rupert Phillips, and the Players’ Player of the Season presented by club sponsor Andrew Laithwaite. On Saturday, Keiran was also awarded the Junior Cards Player of the Season, to take his total number of awards to five!

It wasn’t a clean sweep for midfielder though, as Gozie Ugwu was awarded the Manager’s Player of the Season by Garry Hill!

Goal of the Season

The awards section of the evening kicked off during dessert with everyone’s eyes glued to the televisions to watch the top 10 goals of the season as voted for by the fans.
