Goalkeeper Bianca Hamlyn capped an excellent season by picking up three awards as Wellington Wildcats Ladies held their annual dinner and dance at The Orchard, Rumwell, on Saturday night (June 15th).

Bianca was voted supporters’ player of the season and players’ player of the season

She also picked up the Peter Ayers Trophy – nominated by Peter’s dad, Barry – which is awarded to the most Industrious player.

Striker Ebony Sellick won two awards at the event which was attended by more than 50 guests.

She picked up the golden boot for her ten goals – and now has 21 senior goals from 36 games – and was also named as the managers’ player of the season.

Goal of the season went to Emily Ayers for her 25-yard strike to seal the home win against Bishops Lydeard Reserves while Naomi Southcott was the most improved player.

Wildcats’ person of the year was Yvette Waygood who works tirelessly behind the scenes for both the senior and junior teams.

In his speech, manager John Sellick thanked their sponsors Anchor Services, Wellington Tile Company and Arnolds Plumbing and Heating and also presented flowers to Julie Sellick, Yvette Waygood, Natalie Hamlyn and Jenny Oxby.

He also thanked goalkeeping coach Ian Nott for his excellent work with Bianca.

Before a disco by TH Discos and Events, the ladies held their own “locker room awards” which included the Moon Shooter Award and Twinkle Toes Award.

Wildcats completed their first season in Division One of the Somerset County Women’s League with a credible eight wins from 18 games.

They coupled this with a run to the semi-finals of the Chairmans Cup where they lost 3-2 to the eventual winners.

They will be looking to improve next season and welcome any new players to attend their weekly training sessions, which are currently held on Thursday evenings at the Recreation Ground (6.30pm).
