DAVIE Borthwick scored the best goal of the season for Langholm Legion but Brian Mattinson scored the most goals.
The club announced its annual awards on social media rather than hold its usual presentation night.
The best goal of the season is a new award and was awarded to Borthwick for a goal against Chirnside. Out of the 31 goals scored, his shot stands out.
He stunned a packed home crowd, teammates and probably himself with a tremendous long-distance strike which flew into the top corner.
For the seventh time in his Legion career Mattinson is Legion’s top goal scorer. During 11 appearances in a season interrupted by work he still scored 12 goals without taking a single penalty. He currently sits on 186 goals in 154 appearances.
Ali Little took two trophies, player of the year and players’ player of the year.
He has been a valuable member of the Legion side for just over 10 seasons and this season he was given his preferred central midfield role.
His energy and pace have been vital in some tough matches and his work rate is excellent to help support both attack and defence.
He received 10 votes from his team-mates and deserves players’ player for stepping up and being a main player.
It’s hoped that next season he can keep this form going in what will be a challenging but, hopefully, rewarding season.
Derek Johnson is the E&L player of the year.
He has been a busy player this season, probably more busy than the team would like.
The first game of the season was his comeback match and he came agonisingly close to being the match winner. Against top opposition he provided save after save.
All season he kept his form as a fine shot-stopper and received four man of the match awards, more than any other player.
The 19-year-old defender Finley Dell is the young player of the year, chosen for his great leadership qualities.
As well as excelling at centre half he provides a goal threat in the opposition box and scored three goals last season, one being the vital late winner against Jed Legion.
Aidan Wilson deserves a mention. He featured in every match last season and continues to improve and impress.
Martin Thomlinson, chairman, said: “I’d like to congratulate all the lads who have received awards for their efforts over the course of last season.
“Obviously, it would have been better to have been awarded these in front of their team-mates, partners and committee but, as we all know, it’s strange times for everyone.
“Football, particularly amateur football, isn’t about individuals so I’d like to thank everyone involved with the club from players, management, committee, supporters and sponsors for all their efforts last season.”
Barry Henderson, manager, said: “Last season was a hard slog for us. We had a small squad of players and tough opponents.
“The team must be praised for comfortably avoiding relegation and we look forward to a third consecutive season in Division A.”
