And it was a case of third time lucky for Tarbard, who had been runner-up a year earlier and third the year before that, while he also took the manager's player of the year award from boss Justin Gardner.

Veteran Bruce walked off with the players' player of the year award, which was collected on his behalf by Jack Edwards, while Jordan Peart took the manager's young player of the year prize.
