THE Spar Mid Wales League held its end of season awards at its annual meeting in Llanidloes this week.
League sponsor, Spar Stores, was represented by Owen Davies who made the presentations to last season’s outstanding performers from both divisions.
Joint-managers Jason Samuel and Gareth Hughes were recognised for masterminding Rhayader Town’s title winning campaign and promotion to the Huws Gray Alliance with the first division manager of the season award.
Berriew’s Karl Seliaerts was named player of the season while team-mate Richard Davies scooped the top scorer accolade.
Meanwhile Joe Andrew was celebrated as the second division manager of the year for guiding Kerry to the title and promotion.
Borth United’s Ryan Davies was named player of the season while team-mate Liam Lewis was the second division golden boot winner.
The league re-elected its committee enbloc with the exception of Alan Randall who stepped aside due to his Central Wales Football Association (CWFA) role with Bow Street’s Wyn Lewis elected in his place.
League secretary Phil Woosnam said: “I would like to thank all of those people who were connected with the running of clubs in the Spar Mid
Wales League during the year, especially each club secretary, because without them there would be no league to administer.”
Both Radnor Valley and Newbridge were awarded £1,000 for topping their respective fair play tables.
Woosnam confirmed Football Association of Wales (FAWT) grant aid as part of the successful Welsh Grounds Improvement (WGI) scheme would continue next season and urged clubs to apply.
“Grant aid will hopefully once again be able to improve facilities for both players and spectators alike which benefits the game’s overall image,” said Woosnam “It is pleasing the league took up a large quota of grant aid awarded to us last season and could have taken more if it had been available.”
