Yesterday fans and members of the NCFCOSA attended the Young Player of the Season Award Evening. The inaugural award for the best under-21 player who has come through Notts’ academy as a scholar was scoped up by Hayden Hollis. Fellow nominees Greg Tempest, Curtis Thompson, Fabian Spiess, and Kyle Dixon also attended, along with other academy players, and youth team coaches Dan Leivers and Anny Ninje.
Everyone present felt privileged to hear First Team coach/manager Shaun Derry lay out his plans for the integration of young players into the first team squad and give a frank and honest appraisal of the players coming through the system. We were left in no doubt that Notts have an exciting time ahead.
Our proud congratulations go to Hayden Hollis for being a thoroughly deserving inaugural winner of our Young Player of the Season Award! The Official Supporters’ Association add their congratulations to the other nominees, and wish all young players, and their coaching staff, ongoing success in the season ahead.
The NCFCOSA would like to thank everyone for attending, we would like to thank Shaun Derry for his passionate speeches and unique insight into the players. Les Bradd for kindly helping out with the event and speaking to the audience. Aileen Trew for attending and supporting the evening. You Pies!
