STANLEY winger Andy Todd admitted he was "still in shock" after picking up the Supporter's Player of the Season award.
The 28-year-old was presented with the trophy after the Reds secured their League Two safety with a 3-2 win in their huge winner-takes-all relegation battle with Macclesfield on Saturday.
"I could not believe it and it is only just sinking in," said Todd, who will be offered a new contract next season with the Reds. "It is a nice trophy and, when I look back at the rollercoaster season, it is a nice honour especially because it camefrom the supporters."
Todd didn't begin the League Two campaign in the starting XI but he more than earned his place, coming off the bench for the opener at Chester and scoring some vital goals - including being the main penalty taker and scoring crucial last minute winners.
"I had had a good pre-season and I was ready to take my chance when it came whether it was in the first 15 minutes of the first game or if I had to wait five or six games. As it happened it was the former.
"My favourite goal that sticks in my mind is the last minute winner against Boston as that was my first league goal.
"But the two against Peterborough were special because that was a massive three points for us. It kept our run of home form going and winning the last five home games has been the catalyst to us staying up."
Todd continued: "And also there was one against Lincoln from outside the area - that was probably my 'best looking' goal.
"Of my 11 goals this season, I want to say only four have been penalties though!
"But it isn't a bad contribution from a wide position and I like to think I have contributed to the team with some important goals and helped us get some points."
He admitted, while there have been up and downs, it has been a good first season in the Football League for the former Nottingham Forest trainee.
"I have really enjoyed my first season. It has been hard but we had the full-time experience from the Conference. The difference I have found is the quality of players - people who have played in the Premiership or Championship and filtered down or those that are still good enough for League One.
"We have done well at times this season and showed people what we have been about but we have also been punished for our inexperience and it has been a learning curve.
"I think we have learned a lot though and that should stand us in good stead for next season."
