Midfielder Scott Lowman completed a dazzling double 
at Horncastle Town’s 
end-of-season presentation night.

Lowman won the player’s player of the year award and also picked up the supporter’s player accolade.

Other major winners were Steve Brown, who took the Manager’s player of the year trophy, and goalkeeper Will Wood who was named most improved player.

At reserve team level, the player’s player went to Lee Wilson with the manager’s award going to Callum Low.

Andrew Cotton was named clubman of the year while chairman Colin Low - a key figure in the new clubhouse development project - received a special merit award.

Overall, It proved to be something of a frustrating campaign for Town at both first and reserve team level.

The senior side finished below mid-table in the Sills and Betteridge Premier Division and were well-beaten by Gainsborough Town in the end-of-season Supplementary Cup Final.

The Reserves at least captured some silverware, winning the Horace Franklin Trophy and losing out by a single goal in the Amateur Cup Final.

Meanwhile, the reserves are looking for a new manager for next season to take charge of what will be a young side.

A club spokesman said: “We are looking for someone who is committed to retaining and strengthening the reserve team squad, as well as being able to work closely with the first team manager.”

Town are also recruiting a girls’ team manager for the first time following a series of coaching ‘taster’ sessions.

The spokesman added: “We are preferably looking for a female coach with a passion for the game and a want to drive the club forward.

“We currently hold development charter status so we want to be in a position to offer football for everyone. Along with our established male and junior set-up, female football on top of that is something we are keen to make happen.”

Voluntary coaches are also needed to help out with training and at matches at junior level.
