Teenager Elijah Simpson was a double award winner at Brimscombe & Thrupp’s end of season presentation dinner at the Old Lodge at Minchinhampton on Friday night.

The talented youngster marked his first season in senior football after coming through the youth systems at Forest Green Rovers and Gloucester City by scooping the Manager’s Player of the Year and Supporters’ Player of the Year awards.

Ollie Pitt’s 23 goals saw him pick up the Golden Boot award, while Sam Blackie’s outstanding performances over the course of the 2017-18 campaign saw him recognised by his peers by being voted as Players’ player.

Brimscombe ended the Hellenic Premier season in sixth place, their second highest ever finish at that level under the management of boss Sam Prior, who also guided the Lilywhites to their largest ever points total in the division. The Meadow outfit also won the Gloucestershire Challenge Trophy for the first time in their history after beating Toolstation Western League side Bitton in the final.

Tom Deakin’s Development squad, who earned a sixth place finish in Hellenic Division Two West, saw midfield man Jamie Bish pick up the Players' player and Supporters’ Player of the Year accolades.

Jamies Piatek was rewarded with the Golden Boot prize for his goal tally, while Nathan Wilcox picked up the Managers’ Player of the Year gong.

Robert Hill was named Club Person of the Year for his continued hard work behind the scenes.

Brimscombe are all set for another campaign in the Hellenic Premier Division next season and return to pre-season training at the end of June ahead of a busy pre-season schedule leading into the new league season.
