JORDAN Paga was announced the Supporters’ Player of the Year at the club’s Awards Night on Friday night.
Paga, who scored 12 tries in 16 appearances this year and was Roughyeds’ second highest try scorer – despite missing four games through suspension – came out on top in the fan poll and won with 25.7% of the vote.
A total of five awards were given out at the White Hart with Matty Wilkinson and Martyn Ridyard also recognised for their performances in League One this year.
Captain Martyn Ridyard won the Brian Walker Player of the Year (as chosen by the coaches) and Matty Wilkinson was crowned Players’ Player of the Year.
Stand-off Ridyard and hooker Wilkinson featured in all but one of our games this year (20 out of 21) and have been two consistent try providers for the club this year.
Elsewhere, Sam Bardsley took the trophy for Clubman of the Year who, despite not making an appearance for the club in 2023, always put the team first above himself.
Sam Doyle, the club’s training assistant, won the Unsung Hero Award for consistently going above and beyond in training.
