IT WAS the Paul Mullin show at the Accrington Stanley presentation evening on Saturday night.

The striker won four awards, picking up the Supporters' Player of the Year, the Players' Player of the Year, top goalscorer and Internet Player of the Year. Mullin finished the season with 24 goals in the league, FA Trophy and FA Cup.

Supporters' Young Player of the Year went to midfielder Andy Procter. And winger Rory Prendergast picked up two awards - the Supporters' Club Player of the Year and Junior Reds' Player of the Year.

Andy Gouck's unforgettable winner against Huddersfield in the FA Cup first round was manager John Coleman's goal of the season. Defender Lee Scholes was Reserve Player of the Year.

Male Supporter of the Year was Steve Lowe, organiser of the away travel for Reds' fans, and Kate Prescott was Female Supporter of the Year.

It was a sad night as the Stanley fans said goodbye to long serving goalkeeper Jamie Speare, who is on the transfer list, and Gouck, who is hoping to get fixed up at another Conference side.
