Luke Wilson scooped the top two awards at Boston Town’s end-of-season presentation evening.

The defender received the Player of the Year and Players’ Player gongs on Friday night.

And joint-manager Ian Dunn says both accolades were fully deserved.

“He’s only 20 years old but he’s grown as a player, he’s grown every game,” said Dunn.

“He’s deserved both awards.

“Some people were sceptical when he first came to the club, but he’s proven that he is an important part of this team.

“He’s definitely someone we want to keep at the club.”

Former Boston United trainee Wilson arrived at Tattershall Road in the summer, following Dunn and fellow manager Matt Hocking from Peterborough Premier League side Pinchbeck.

After beginning the campaign at right back, Wilson showed his adaptability after also excelling in a central defensive role alongside captain Michael Wood.

And his first season in the UCL Premier saw him play in every league and cup match, bar the FA Cup defeat to Quorn.

Utility player Ollie Pinner received the Supporters’ Player trophy.

Dunn added: “He’s that type of player the supporters like.

“He gets stuck in and gives everything.”

The Poachers are looking to finally complete their season on Thursday night, when they host Wellingborough in league action (KO 7.45pm).

Last Tuesday’s match was postponed due to floodlight failure.
