NPL Awards Night

Hundreds of famous names have took to the stage at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens theatre in the past with Reds’ chairman, Phil Norman, following suit at the Northern Premier League’s Awards Ceremony.

Workington were re-presented with their NPL West Division Play-off Winners trophy when clubs and individuals were honoured for last season’s achievements at the lavish event on Saturday.

The Workington party were seated with officials from South Shields and 1874 Northwich and their representatives were invited to the stage too.

Shields received the  Premier Division trophies and championship flag after winning promotion to National North and 1874 were rewarded as the NPL Club of the Year, an award which recognises club administration, hospitality and match day presentation etc.

David Symington was on the short list for the West Division Player of the Season but that trophy was presented to Macclesfield’s outstanding talent – James Berry.

Worksop Town’s Liam Hughes was a frequent visitor to the stage, collecting various accolades, but also made a passionate speech about his mental health issues in the past.

Chief guest of the evening, FA vice-chair Jack Pearce, delivered a strong message to all non-league clubs, emphasising the importance of the game at steps 1-5.

League chairman, Mark Harris, superbly hosted the event attended by 400 people.
