AFC Rushden & Diamonds supporters had their annual chance to vote for their Player of the Season, and for the 2017-18 season they chose Ben Farrell. Ben has continued with his fine performances in midfield this season, but has also finished as the club’s leading goalscorer, netting 19 times in his 36 league appearances.
The award is sponsored by P.W. House Jewellers of Rushden, who are continuing a long tradition of sponsoring this award, going back many years with R&DFC. Their business has been part of life in Rushden High Street for the last 65 years, having been Rushden’s Family Jewellers for over 70 years.
Ben was presented with the award before the final game of the season, with Diamonds’ Supporters Rob and Lesley Bishop performing the presentation.
