Belper Town marked the achievements of two players with a presentation ahead of Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Kidsgrove Athletic.

Eric Graves (second left) and Johno Williams have passed the 100 appearances mark for the Nailers.

The two midfielders are pictured receiving their engraved glass awards from Alan Benfield (left), chairman of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Division One South club, and board member Andy Carter.

Graves, in his third spell with the club, later tweeted: “Nice bit of recognition for hitting 100 appearances for @BelperTownFC earlier this season. Even better to win the game today.”

Williams, who signed from Buxton in January 2015, tweeted: “Thanks to @BelperTownFC for the award today! Nice to get 100 appearances.”

The club added its congratulations on social media.

Last year Graves made his 500th non-league appearance in the Derbyshire FA Senior Cup final.
