ASHLEY Jackson and Carl O'neil were the pick of the bunch at the Coventry Sphinx Annual end of season awards evening.

Defender Jackson was a double award winner at the awards on May 5 after being voted the Player's Player of the Season and the 23-year-old was also named the club's Most Improved Player after a series of impressive performances at Sphinx Drive.

Goalkeeper O'Neil picked up the prestigous Supporters Player Of The Year after another fine season between the sticks.

And his efforts were also rewarded when he was presented with the Manager's Player of the Year award, which was presented by Danny McSheffrey, one of his final roles as Sphinx manager before stepping down in the summer along with his assistant Lee Knibbs.

Elsewhere, Jack Edwards took the Young Player Of The Year Award, Lynton Wilkinson was deservedly named Club Man Of The Year and forward Luke Williams was crowned top goalscorer after hitting 21 league goals this season.

There was also a special mention to secretary Jackie McGowan who was handed the Coventry Sphinx Paul Gibbons Award for all of her hard work behind the scenes.
