Boss Liam Daish has praised Joe Howe after the defender completed a clean sweep of the major awards at Ebbsfleet United this season.

The 24-year-old, who clocked up 45 games in all competitions, won the Fleet Trust, MyFC, manager’s and players’ player of the year in the presentations made at Stonebridge Road on Saturday.

Craig Stone was another winner, while boss Liam Daish won the Bruce Sewell Outstanding Contribution Award.

Goalkeeper Preston Edwards won Daish’s nomination for young player-of-the-year, and shared the sponsors’ player awards with Stone, top scorer Calum Willock and Tom Phipp.

"Joe’s awards were deserved," said Daish (pictured). "He has really come on, played a lot of games this season, and been very consistent, qualities that showed why his peers at the club voted for him."

On his own award, Daish added: "It’s always nice to be appreciated, and I see it as recognition for the consistency and longevity in the job."

The Fleet boss, who celebrated his seventh anniversary in charge in February, has won huge plaudits this season for guiding the club to retain their Blue Square Bet Conference Premier status.
