Harry Cornick and Pelly-Ruddock Mpanzu were the big winners at the LTST Virtual Player of the Season Presentation, as the Trust celebrated the Great Escape with their traditional end of season ceremony in a virtual capacity, due to the restraints of Covid-19.
Harry landed four awards on a successful evening for the attacker, winning the Goal of the Season, Bobbers Travel Away Player of the Season, Junior Supporters’ Player of the Season and the Players’ Player of the Season trophies, after a maiden campaign in the Championship which saw him finish as the Town’s second leading scorer with nine goals.
However it was Pelly-Ruddock who landed the big prize of the LTST Player of the Season, as well as retaining the Ian Pearce Memorial Trophy and also scooping the Internet Player of the Season. The three awards capped off a brilliant campaign for the powerful midfielder, one which saw him play and score in a fourth different division during his time with the Hatters.
Sam Beckwith was voted the Young Player of the Season, chosen by the coaching staff, after a season where he penned a development contract with the club, recently resulting in him featuring in some of the pre-season friendlies.
The other award on the night went to 100-year-old Hatters fan Fred Young who was handed the LTST Outstanding Contribution Award, in recognition of the amazing support he has given the club throughout a prolonged period of time.
Congratulations Harry, Pelly, Sam and Fred!
