Midfielder Dan Quigley was the big winner at King's Lynn Town's end-of-season awards tonight.

The all-action player, who arrived at the club under a cloud following his wild celebrations in front of Linnets' supporters when Long Buckby beat them in 2012, picked up three trophies after his stunning debut season.

Supporters' club Friends of the Linnets picked him as their player of the season while Quigley was also crowned overall supporters' player of the season and was also given the Maurice Ebbs award.

Defender Phil Gulliver lifted the players' player prize while captain Richard Bunting – present despite undergoing a groin operation the day before – was given the manager's player of the season crown by his boss Gary Setchell. Keith 'Buster' Chapman gave his award, chairman's player of the season, to goalkeeper Danny Gay.

The title-winning first team were also joined at the event by the club's championship-winning reserves outfit.

James Spittlehouse was hugely successful for the Linnets' second string as he collected reserves supporters' and manager's player of the season. He could only finish runner-up however to Shaun Stocker in the sponsors' player of the season category.

The reserves players' player of the season prize went to midfielder Luke Biles who, like Stocker, has featured for the first team this term.
