CHRIS Gahgan says Witton’s winners at Sunday’s Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Player of the Year prize night were worthy ones.

The Albion attacker told the Guardian that he could make a case for one or two more of his clubmates to have been included in the Division One North Team of the Season.

Anthony Gardner, Alex Titchiner and Mathew Wood made the cut.

“It’s massive for the club to be recognised in this way,” said Gahgan.

“I congratulate the lads that were included, and there’s probably a few more that deserve to be in the running.”

Gahgan’s strike partner, Titchiner, scooped the division’s Young Player of the Year award as well as finishing second to Hednesford Town defender Cheyenne Dunkley in a supporters’ poll for best player across the league’s three divisions.

The former Warrington front man says it’s a joy to play with Witton’s 31-goals top scorer.

He said: “His movement is so good.

“We back each other up, but he works so hard that it’s easy to strike up an understanding with him.”

Hundreds of guests packed the Brooklands Holiday Inn, in Barnsley, for the inaugural awards ceremony.

Hosted by Northern Premier League representative John Jones and Caroline Barker, presenter of BBC London’s Non-League Show, it featured six individual awards voted for by the managers of Evo-Stik NPL clubs.

Skelmersdale United forward Shaun Tuck won the Division One North Player of the Year gong while former Witton forward Steve Foster did the same for the Premier Division.

Another ex-Albion favourite, midfielder Alex Brown, was named in the top tier’s Team of the Year.
