Young full-back Tomlinson deservedly collected the award after a dazzling season-long loan from Premier League outfit Brighton, who have since released the promising 18-year-old.

And his proud dad Jeremy took to social media to express his delight at his son's experience at the club during the Bostik Premier division campaign.

He wrote on Twitter: "A big well done to all award winners and a huge thank you to BRTFC for Joe’s awards! It has been a wonderful year following the Rocks, lovely people and a heartwarming culture. The club will always have a place in our hearts! Thank you again!"

Fans who attend the bash also go the chance to get their hands on the Sussex Senior Cup, which Jack Pearce and Robbie Blake guided the club to with a 2-1 AET victory over Burgess Hill Town at the Amex Stadium earlier this month.

The full list of winners on the night:

100 appearances awards - Chad Field, Calvin Davies & Dan Lincoln

300 appearances - Doug Tuck

Sportsman's award - Lee Roberts

Chairman's Cup - Harvey Whyte

Goal of the season - Bradley Lethbridge Vs Leatherhead

Kevin Clement Trophy (leading goalscorer) - Jimmy Muitt

Supporters' club chairman Ian Guppy said: "It was a pleasure to be able to recognise our first trophy in over 30 years and for our fans to touch the silverware. In a season that promised so much at the start and over Christmas it petered out into one some may see as a little disappointing but to lift a trophy at the end is a success and it was a great night to recognise the players responsible.

"I thank them all for their endeavours this season and good luck next season, whether at Bognor Regis Town FC or another club. I also thank the supporters and the supporters club committee for all of their help on making the evening such a success and look forward to pre-season already."
