Tom Crowned U's Top Player

Eastman and Vincent-Young enjoy awards success

8 May 2018

Colchester United defender Tom Eastman was crowned the U's Official Player of the Year in Tuesday night's End of Season awards.

Tom, who has once again been a virtual ever present in the U's back line, picked up the Official Player of the Year award for the third time in his seven seasons at the club.

Tom completed a treble on the night, winning both the CUSA Home and Away Player of the Year accolades.

Sam Walker, who recently joined Tom in the 200 U's appearances club, was the squad's own choice for top player as he came out on top of their voting.

And completing a good night for the U's defensive line - which ended as the joint sixth best in the division - Kane Vincent-Young picked up two awards.

The impressive full back picked up the Young Player of the Year award and, with his sensational run and finish against Forest Green Rovers, he was also awarded the Goal of the Season accolade.

Luke Prosser, who has been a leader on and off the pitch this season, was awarded the Community Player of the Year award.
