Boothy gets fans’ accolade

Tim ChannonFirst Team

WILL BOOTH was named Supporters’ Player of the Season after the Seagulls ended their campaign with a 1-0 home defeat to Scarborough Athletic.

Gaz Grant got both the Manager’s and Director’s vote, while Louis Corrigan was named Players’ Player.

In a game a few chances Jacob Hazel seized on a missed clearance kick to score the only goal of the game on 54 minutes and book Scarborough’s place in the play-offs.

The Bay, without injured Jamie Rainford and forced into a late change when Mike Roddy tweaked his groin in the warm-up,  struggled to create a noteworthy chance against a defence that has not conceded a goal now in eight consecutive games.

Long range shots from Louis Corrigan (twice) and Will Booth were easily dealt with by keeper Joe Green, although he did well to tip a deflected cross from Warren Bellew over his own bar.

Karl Wills was not that much busier at the other end, although he made an excellent one-on-one save from Scarborough’s Cameron Murray in the second half, with Murray and Jameel Ible missing the target with good chances.

A big following from Scarborough, which gave the Bay their biggest home gate of the season (470) celebrated with their players afterwards and they can look forward to a play-off semi-final against Ossett Town on Tuesday.

Lancaster City were crowned Champions after a 5-2 win at Glossop, while Farsley Celtic and Colne will contest the other play-off semi-final.
