The Ramsbottom United End of Season awards were held in the club’s Hospitality Suite following the last home game of the season against Bury, with the players and supporters joining together to look back over the 2023/24 campaign and present the annual mementos.

Forward Luke Sephton was the main beneficiary of the evening as he scooped both the Players’ Player of the Year and the Supporters Club Player of the Year following an impressive season since joining from Kendal Town in September.

Luke played 39 games this season, scoring six goals and was a popular winner within the group, standing out throughout the difficult season with the Rams where he played both as a striker and a midfielder.

The 28-year-old received his Players’ Player of the Year award from James Daly, the MP for Bury North and regular visitor to the Harry Williams Riverside Stadium across the season.

The Supporters Club certainly saw what the players saw in Luke as they comfortably gave him their award, donated by The Oaks Public House in Ramsbottom. Luke received his trophy from Rocco Pritchard, a volunteer member of the supporters.

Captain Oscar Radcliffe received the Manager’s Player of the Season award.  21-year-old Oscar has been an ever present in the side, having played in each of the Rams’ 55 games, and scoring four goals.

One of the players to remain at the club following their relegation from the Northern Premier League last season, he has stood up this season and led his home town club with acclaim, despite the results.

Ramsbottom United Supporters Club also announced their Players of the Month for both March and April. 

Defender Harvey Hayhurst took the award for March.  His efforts were rewarded as he scored in the game against Prestwich Heys and played in all seven of the league games in the month and his award was well received.

Hugely talented 17-year-old Fleetwood Town loanee Theo Butterworth was the hands-down winner of the April award.  The defender has been outstanding in his nine games for the club since joining in late March and it was no surprise that he lifted the April gong.

 Two certificates were also presented on the night. One to Oscar Radcliffe to celebrate him playing in all 55 games, and one to Andy Spensley of the Supporters Club, who watched every single game of the season, quite a feat!
