Captain Eric Graves was the clear winner of Belper Town’s player of the year award.

Supporters were asked to nominate their star of the season, via the Belper News, ahead of a presentation at the Nailers’ last home game against Market Drayton on Saturday. And passionate midfielder Graves, who is a firm fans’ favourite, came out on top. His energy and desire inspired a run that saw Belper lose only once in 11 games from November into the New Year.
