FC CLACTON celebrated a record-breaking campaign at their end-of-season awards nights.

The Seasiders finished an impressive sixth in the Thurlow Nunn League premier division - the club's best-ever finish - and managed a record 19 victories.

They only lost 13 times and scored 76 goals - both the club's best in the premier division - while amassing their highest-ever top-flight points tally of 63, from 38 games.

It turned out to be a remarkable campaign for Tom Austin's men and that success was marked at the club's awards night, held in the Rush Green Bowl clubhouse on Saturday night.

First-team players took their turn in the spotlight, along with those from the club's reserves, veterans and ladies' sides.

Zach Smith-Walter was named young player-of-the-season, as well as being both home supporters' player-of-the-season and away supporters' player-of-the-season.

To cap a great night, he also received a prize for making 50 Clacton appearances.

Midfielder Jack Clampin received the manager's player-of-the-year award from boss Austin.

He was also given a prize for clocking up 100 Clacton appearances.

It was also a great night for midfielder Harry McDonald.

In addition to walking away with the coveted players' player-of-the-year award, he also won the champagne moment of the season prize for his wonder strike at Norwich United in October.

McDonald also picked up an award for chalking up his 50th Clacton appearance.

Karl Andrade finished as top scorer, narrowly beating team-mate Adam Hampson and finishing the season with 23 goals.

The striker was also recognised for making his 150th Seasiders appearance.

Other appearance awards were handed to Adam Daniels (250), skipper Wayne Chapman and Lee Clowsley (both 150), goalkeeper Joe Fowler and Jake Clowsley (100) and Ben Parkin (50).

Awards were also handed out to players from other teams within the club.

For the reserves, the joint-winners of the players' player award were Tom Woods and Sam Thompson.

The latter also finished as top goalscorer.

Lyndon Bramhall was named manager's player-of-the-year.

Adam Hillier was the vets' players' player winner while the manager's award went to Lee Sparrow.

Charlotte Robertson was players' player-of-the-year for the ladies' team while others award winners were Kristy Lucraft (manager's player), Becky McDougall (top goalscorer) and Jasmine Burley (most improved player).
