Eastman Lands Main Award

8 May 2015

Tom is your Player of the Year; Gavin Massey is Players' Player.

He played every minute of every game in the 2014/15 season – and Tom Eastman is your Official Player of the Year, after leading the way in this year's voting.

The commanding centre half has enjoyed another strong campaign, despite having to adjust to a number of defensive partners during the season.

The 23-year-old capped a consistent campaign with an imperious, near perfect display against Preston on Sunday to help the U's to a vital clean sheet and three points that ensured another season in League One.

It is the second year in a row that the Clacton based centre half has lifted the major title at the End of Season Awards.

Tom also picked up both of the Colchester United Supporters Association awards to mark a memorable treble.

Gavin Massey, who also played in every game this season, was chosen by the U's squad as the Players’ Player of the Year for the second season in the three years that he's been at the club.

The U's Academy has produced players that contributed 122 appearances for the first team in 2014/15 and it was Sammie Szmodics who picked up the Young Player of the Year accolade for his impressive displays in midfield.

And homegrown players also picked up two further awards.

Drey Wright's thunderbolt against Gillingham in the Johnstone's Paints Trophy was a clear winner in the Goal of the Season category, whilst Frankie Kent's off the pitch efforts saw him chosen as a popular winners of the U's Community Player of the Year.

In the other player award, George Moncur was Hospital Radio Colchester's Player of the Year.

In the staff awards, Dave Attan was the U’s staff members' chosen Employee of the Year, whilst Tom Tayler picked up General Manager Tim Waddington's Staff Member of the Year title.

The U's also celebrated their recent Family Club of the Year award again on Friday night, whilst Julie Ager's Club Hero accolade was also commemorated.
