SCOTT Brown was honoured by both Cheltenham Town fans and his team-mates as he scooped an award double.

The 28-year-old goalkeeper was named supporters' and players' player of the year for his most consistent season yet.

He maintained his ever-present record in the 0-0 draw with Bradford City on Saturday and he has started all 46 league games in three of the past four seasons.

It was also his 20th clean sheet of the campaign, 19 of which have been in the league – the highest in the division.

Brown became the fifth goalkeeper to take the supporters' award since it was introduced in 1966, following Jeff Miles, Neil Hards, Martin Thomas and his former mentor Shane Higgs, who won it in both 2004 and 2007.

Former Wolves trainee Brown is contracted to Cheltenham next season and if he sees out the remainder of his deal he will complete a decade's service to the club.

Winger Jermaine McGlashan was named Junior Robins' player of the year at the end of his first full season with Cheltenham.

Churchdown-based midfielder Joe Hanks took the young player of the year award for the rapid progress which earned him a first senior appearance this term and a professional contract for next season.

Boss Mark Yates also presented back-up goalkeeper Connor Roberts with his first Wales Under-21 cap, which he won against Iceland in February.

Roberts is yet to make his first-team debut for Cheltenham, but he has impressed goalkeeping coach Steve Book with his improvement since arriving from Everton last summer.

    Well done S B ,as one of your many critics I have to say this is a player who accepted his weaknesses and as worked hard on making improvements,personally I chose Steve Elliott as my choice but cannot argue with the majority decision,and a worth player of the year choice.
