Axminster Town's presentation evening for the first team was held at the York Inn run by manager Dan Prettejohn. The York Inn were fabulous hosts and everyone enjoyed a delicious three-course meal before the awards were presented. 

Dan Prettejohn was also presented a signed shirt to thank him for his dedication and hard work for the club this season. 

President Les Bounds awarded the President's Cup to chairman Andrew Hurford for his outstanding contribution to the club. Andrew has worked tirelessly over the last ten years and was the driving force behind the cub's impressive fantastic youth set-up when he formed and under 6s team ten years ago, the first youth team at the club since the move from Sector Lane to Tiger Way. 

The young playershave now just finished their last season of youth football before they move into the Under 18s and the men's game. There is now a youth team for every year group coming up behind them from under 6s right through to the under 16s and 18s, a fantastic achievement. 

The awards were awarded as follows…

Manager's Player, Richard Hebditch

Player's Player, Ben Palmer

Supporter's Player, Richard Hebditch 

Golden Boot, Craig Veal
