Midfielder praises Reds fans after winning four end of season awards
Gwion Edwards won four of the five awards which were given out at the end of season presentations which followed the Barnet game on Saturday.
The Welsh midfielder won the prestigious Dave Haining award, which is based on man of the match nominations by Reds fans after each game. The award was presented by Dave’s son Neil and members of the Haining family.
Gwion also won two awards presented by the Supporters Alliance and voted by their members as well as the Crawley Observer Young Player of the Year. The Observer’s Player of the Year went to Matt Harrold, another popular choice with the fans who attend the event in Redz Bar, where they also had the opportunity to meet new Head Coach Dermot Drummy and the players.
Gwion said: “At times this season we looked a good team and if you look at our results we have beaten some of the best teams in the division.
“But we finished poorly and that’s disappointing but hopefully things will improve next season. I’m quite excited about the way the new manager wants us to play and there’s no doubt there will be a lot of new faces.
“I’m looking forward to a break, to watching Wales do well at Euro 2016 and then to coming back for pre-season.
“In the meantime, I’d like to thank all the supporters who voted for me in the various awards.
"To win four trophies means a lot. The fans stuck by us this season and the ones who travel away are amazing so thanks from all the lads and we look forward to moving in the right direction as a team and a club next season.”Tweets by @crawleytown
