Colyton Youth FC held its annual presentation night at Colyton Town Hall on Friday when over 100 children were present, from the under-8s up to under-16s, including the girls' under-13s. The younger age groups were all awarded medals, whilst the older age groups were awarded trophies for Most Improved Player, Sportsman of the Year, Players' Player and Manager's Player. The Paul Webber Trophy, which was donated to the club by Mr and Mrs Graham Webber in memory of their son Paul, is for Most Improved Player in the under-16 age group and this year was shared between Tom Videan and Sam Tollerfield.For the first time a new award was given which is for the Clubman of the Year and it was shared between two people who have put a tremendous effort in for youth football in Colyton - Phil Richards, who works tirelessly behind the scenes at the playing fields to keep the pitches in fantastic condition, and Tony Love has given a massive amount of time and effort to put Colyton YFC in the position it is today. Sadly Tony is stepping down this year after six years as Chairman and everybody at the club would like to thank him and wish him all the best for the future. Thanks also to everyone who have worked to make this season run so well and last, but by no means least, thanks to all of the players who turn out to represent Colyton for their efforts and sportsmanlike attitude.
