DANNY HOLMES was crowned Manager's Player of the Season at Connah's Quay Nomads' virtual awards night.

Defender Holmes, who signed a new two-year deal at the club last month, pipped Michael Wilde and Lewis Brass to the award.

And Nomads' boss Andy Morrison saluted Holmes, who has Football League experience with Tranmere Rovers and Newport County, for his consistency throughout the Flintshire side's title winning campaign.

"I've looked at it over the whole season and looked back at the stats for consistency, not moments of brilliance," said Morrison, who continued: "His level of consistency never dips.

"He came second last year and was very unlucky not to win it, but the fact he came second last year and has gone on to win it this year, tells you the level of consistency he manages to give, week in, week out.

"He's a terrific player, a terrific lad, he's fantastic in the changing room and I'm very lucky to have been able to work with him.

"It's thoroughly deserved and I can't speak highly enough of him."

Holmes edged Wilde into second, the striker praised by Morrison, who said: "He's had a fantastic season. He's been terrific.

"He's improved year on year and, again, I believe, the season just gone has been his best season. He's led the team, he's incredibly strong minded and has incredible self-belief.

"He's been a great addition to the squad since he came in and it was very, very close between him and the winner."

And goalkeeper Brass was in third place, Morrison saying of the Nomads' number one: "It's a fantastic first full season at the club.

"I always remind him that as a football club we are set up to make goalkeepers look good. We have the best defensive record year on year.

"John Danby did very well for three or four years and Lewis has stepped in and had a fantastic season, for me he's been the best goalkeeper in the league."

Brass and Wilde were rewarded for their efforts throughout the historic campaign.

Stopper Brass landed the Supporters' Player of the Season honour ahead of Declan Poole and Jamie Insall, while striker Wilde picked up the Players' Player of the Season award.
