The Hares were firmly in the promotion race from Thurlow Nunn League First Division North, as well as in the finals of the First Division KO Cup and the Cambridgeshire Invitation Cup before the campaign was made null and void last month.

However, the club were not going to let the coronavirus pandemic stop their end-of-season presentation from taking place, with the men’s teams receiving their annual awards.

The supporters’ player of the year went to Jamie Short, while Danny Emmington won manager Arran Duke’s player of the year.

Jack Friend bagged the top scorer award with 35 goals in 40 appearances, while strike partner Craig Gillies was named players’ player of the year.
