Defender Corrie Ndaba has been voted as the Supporters’ Player of the Season, with Jason Lowe scooping the Players’ Player of the Season award.

The 22-year-old has been a regular fixture at the back after recovering from a leg injury sustained away at Forest Green Rovers in October.

He scored his first professional goal in the 2-0 win away at Hartlepool United, a thumping effort from the top of the box, and he has contributed to 11 clean sheets in 28 league appearances.

The young Irishman, on loan with us for the season from Ipswich Town, commented:

“It’s unbelievable, I’ve just enjoyed my time here. Since I first come it’s been unbelievable, I’ve fell in love with the fans, the players, the staff, it’s just been unbelievable.

“The love they’ve shown me I’ve never experienced anything like that before and it’s just, every time I’m on the pitch and I can hear them singing it gives me that extra boost, that extra confidence, when I’ve won my award there I couldn’t even get a word in they were still singing!

“The Manager’s put a lot of trust in me and given me the chance to show what I can do and given me the chance to play so many games so I’ll be forever grateful to the Manager, to Salford and again for me it’s just been unbelievable, that’s the only word I can use!”

Meanwhile Lowe has made more appearances than any player this season, racking up 47 in total and missing just one league game. 

He has captained the team at the back end of the season in Ash Eastham’s absence and covered at both central midfield and right-back, and his efforts have been recognised by the team and staff. The 30-year-old said:

“I’m really proud, it’s an honour to receive it. I think a hell of a lot about these lads in the dressing room and we’ve given everything.

“On a personal note for them to vote for me means a lot and I’m really pleased.”

Centre-back Jordan Turnbull was also presented with his EFL Football Manager Team of the Season award, which he picked up at the EFL Awards eight days ago.

Congratulations to all the winners, and to those of you who voted and have followed the team at any point this season.
