Right back Jack Donnison scooped two awards at North Shields’ end of season presentation night, walking away with both Supporters’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year.

The 23-year-old, snapped up from Blyth Town back in 2013, has been one of the Robins’ most consistent performers throughout another successful season, making 46 appearances in total across the campaign.

The popular defender even notched the first goal of his Shields career in the 6-0 demolition of Newcastle Benfield, then doubling his tally later in the season with a fine strike in the 3-2 defeat at Consett.

Fellow defender John Parker picked up the Player of the Year award.

The centre half gave his all once again for the club, not least throughout an outstanding man-of-the-match performance in the NFA Senior Cup final.

Gary Ormston was handed the Manager’s Player of the Year honour, the former Whitley Bay and Dunston midfielder having impressed Graham Fenton with his composure and sound reading of the game in the middle of the park.

Gareth Bainbridge edged out Jack Devlin to earn the Goal of the Season gong, his magnificent touch and lob in the 4-3 Senior Cup final victory over Blyth Spartans a deserved winner of the accolade.

The number nine also collected the club’s top goalscorer award, having netted 19 times in all competitions this season.

Bainbridge, Parker, Donnison and Michael McKeown were all commended for reaching 100 games at the club, while Ben Richardson earned special recognition for surpassing the 200-game mark.

Deputy chairman Trevor Campbell took home the Clubman of the Year award, with his tireless work behind the scenes commended by the club.
