Tony Pulis was joined by his coaching staff and first team squad at the event having travelled back from Boro's match at Ipswich Town earlier in the day.

The Boro manager was invited on stage at the beginning of formalities and expressed his pride in his players for reaching the Championship Play-Offs - with the first leg of our semi-final with Aston Villa taking place at the Riverside next Saturday.

Adama Traore was recognised for his sparkling second half of the campaign with a hat-trick of accolades, presented with the Rockliffe Hall Young Player of the Year and the Cornerstone Players' Player of the Year, the latter voted for by his Boro teammates.

One of six nominees, Traore was also the winner of the Ramsdens Player of the Year as voted for by Boro supporters.

Elsewhere, George Friend was presented with the Prestige Group Goal of the Year award after his super strike against QPR at Loftus Road was selected as the best by Boro fans.

Stewart Downing was presented with his award for Boro's PFA Community Player of the Year, while our Grounds Team were also recognised after being named the best in the Championship this season.

The final award of the evening was for Lifetime Achievement, and was presented to Boro's former Academy Manager Dave Parnaby, who recently retired after two decades at the helm of our prestigious Academy at Rockliffe Park.
