Harvey scoops players honour in club awards

Rocks skipper Harvey Whyte and young left back Joe Tomlinson were the big winners as the Rocks rounded off their season in style.


More than 100 people packed into Seasons bar at Nyewood Lane last weekend for the club’s annual awards evening.


Captain Whyte was all smiles as he received the players’ player of the year award from supporters club chairman Ian Guppy, pictured left.


The skipper, who lifted the Sussex Senior Cup for the club for the first time in 32 years, was also awarded the Chairman’s Cup.


Tomlinson was the other player to be singled out for honours.


His performances from left back after joining the Rocks on loan from Brighton & Hove Albion received rave reviews.


The youngster was justly rewarded with the Supporters Club Player of the Season as well as Most Improved Player.


Other awards handed out included the Kevin Clement Trophy to top scorer Jimmy Muitt and Goal of the Season to Bradley Lethbridge for his strike against Leatherhead.


Chad Field, Calvin Davies and Dan Lincoln were all honoured for making 100 appearances while Doug Tuck received a trophy for playing in 300 matches in a Bognor shirt.


The Sportsman’s Award went to Lee Roberts, who has helped establish Rocks Radio, an online match commentary service provided during Bognor matches.


*Sussex Senior Cup winners Rocks will face SCFL Premier champions Chichester City in the annual Sussex Community Shield.


The match, on July 30 at Lancing’s Culver Road (7.30pm), will add a competitive edge to Bognor’s pre-season preparations with the newly-promoted City keen to impress ahead of their first ever season in Bostik South East.


Admission is £6 adults, £3 concessions and £1 under 18s with all proceeds supporting the NSPCC South & Mid Sussex Branch as part of its 60th anniversary.


Ken Benham, Chief Executive of the Sussex County FA, said: “We are delighted to be able to continue our support for our charitable partners the NSPCC, and help celebrate the 60th year of the South & Mid Sussex Branch.


“With the help of the Sussex football community we can hopefully raise as much as possible at the Sussex Community Shield to ensure their valuable work continues.”
