At Copsewood Coventry's recent awards night, goalkeeper Natasha Smithers safely collected two honours.
Firstly, Natasha collected the Most Improved Player before making a double swoop to be named as the Players' Player of the Year.
Now in her fourth season at the West Midlands club, Smithers has excelled between the posts over the years. Leona McCook collected the Manager's Player of the Year accolade after making the move from Coventry City while the club's Golden Boot award went to Nicola Foskett.
There was also a special mention for last season's hot-shot Ria Baker who, for personal reasons, missed much of the campaign and her team mates rallied to present Ria and her partner with a surprise weekend break. Club Sponsor Melanie Smith, who runs several businesses in the City Centre, was praised for her generous sponsorship of Copsewood which has paved the way to the club's success over the past few seasons.
As manager Mick Conneely sets about leading Copsewood into their tenth league campaign since taking the reins at the Allard Way club, he knows his side's undoing could well be once again the small squad that exists at the rising Midlands Club. However, having built some solid foundations, Conneely is expected to add several new additions to his small brigade as they make their preparations for a second season in the Midland Combination.
Ahead of this week's return to pre-season training, high on Conneely's shopping list is a striker with proven goalscoring ability to boost his side's firepower.
Having achieved back to back promotions, Copsewood's debut season in the Midland Combination ended with what Conneely labelled a 'disappointing' sixth place finish despite reaching the League Cup Final where they lost a thrilling match 4-3 to Champions Derby County.
