Rory Hale celebrated a personal double at last night’s Cliftonville FC Awards.

As well as being voted Player of the Year by Reds supporters, the 27-year-old was also named Players’ Player of the Year by his team-mates at the Hilton Hotel.

Younger brother Ronan laid claim to the Golden Boot for the second consecutive campaign following his 22 strike haul – no mean feat for a player who sustained a cruciate ligament injury just weeks before the Sports Direct Premiership kicked off – while Jonny Addis’ blistering equaliser against Newry City in January was named Goal of the Season.

Odhrán Casey landed the Young Player of the Year accolade and, though unable to attend the event just hours after surgery on the broken leg he sustained in the Clearer Water Irish Cup Final, expressed his gratitude in a specially recorded video message.

The Freddie Jardine Special Merit Award was, meanwhile, presented to Kevin Crossan by Chairman Kieran Harding, with one of many standing ovations on the night reserved for the dedicated Clubman.

Congratulations to all our winners and thank you to everyone – particularly Michael Hegney and Amanda Irvine – for their assistance in organising the event, with further gratitude extended to compere Ruth Gorman, DJ Johnny Hero and the Hilton Hotel staff for their professionalism and dilgence throughout the night.
