Michael Readman thanked Scarborough RUFC fans and teammates after he lifted the Scarborough News Player of the Year award.

Readman received almost 50 votes in our Twitter poll to decide who would prevail from coach Lee Douglas’ five-man shortlist.

Readman prevailed ahead of Aussie Eamon Chapman, club veterans Graeme Jeffrey and Paul Taylor and fly-half Tom Harrison to the award.

Sports reporter Daniel Gregory was on hand at Silver Royd to present Readman with his trophy before their 45-23 win against Selby.

Readman said: “It was great to be on the five-man shortlist, but I expected Eamon to win it as he cleaned up the other club awards and has had an excellent season.

“It’s an honour to get the votes and to win the award and it’ll give me a boost going into next season.
