Henry Eze has been named as the Kettering Towns supporters’ player-of-the-year.

The popular central defender has been a regular part of the Poppies’ squad since he arrived at the club along with a virtual new squad following the financial problems that almost put Kettering out of business at the back-end of last year.

Eze also claimed the Poppies Trust’s award as well as the overall prize for the total number of votes cast.

Fellow centre-half Dan Crowie picked up the players’ player-of-the-year awards while captain Nathan Hicks got the nod from the club’s Vice-Presidents.

There was one other award handed out at the club’s presentation night at Latimer Park on Saturday with the creator of Poppies Radio Tim Cullup being named clubman of the year.

Kettering round off their Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division campaign, which has ended in a second successive relegation, at Chesham United on Saturday.
