BEN HEDLEY was the big winner at Darlington’s end-of-season awards night, claiming three trophies.

The defender was named Player of the Year, an award which is voted for by the supporters, as well as Players’ Player of the Year and the Manager’s Player of the Year.

Striker Jack Lambert won the Young Player of the Year award, while Kevin Dos Santos claimed the Goal of the Season trophy for his strike against AFC Fylde in March.

The late James Charlton won the Harvey Madden Award, recognising his tireless work as a volunteer with Quakers, especially in the wake of the club’s forced relegation in 2012. James’ parents, Carol and Steve, attended the presentation evening to receive the award.

Meanwhile, Darlington have announced a pre-season friendly at Crook Town on Saturday, July 9. It will be Quakers’ second summer game against Northern League opposition, following the trip to Newton Aycliffe on July 5.
