MALVERN Vale Firsts held their awards night at The Cross Keys pub.

The players' player went to midfielder Mario Vieira who created and scored numerous goals to help the club towards the Cheltenham League Division Three title.

Manager Devin Ward gave his player accolade to keeper Marcin Celmer as the club kept 13 clean sheets in 35 games.

Captain's player and the golden boot both went to Matt Strangwood who narrowly beat Mig Passaro to the latter.

But Strangwood leaves the club this summer to take up the managerial role at Leominster Town.

Andre Rodrigues, Nick Jones and Ethan Lambert also picked up awards while the clubman accolade went to volunteer David Ward for his efforts in bringing in sponsorship alongside his help at home games.

Vale have been catapulted up into Division One next season due to restructuring.

The first pre-season friendly is at Upton Town on Wednesday, July 10.

Vale's first game at their new home ground of Dysons Perrins Academy will be against Worcester Raiders.

The club are looking for new players, sponsors and matchday volunteers.
