His development brought interest from other clubs but he stayed with the Shrimps and his displays this season have seen him placed on standby for England age group training camps.

The Shrimps were unable to make it a double on the night, however, after missing out on the award for Best Club Marketing, Sponsorship or Engagement Campaign.

They were shortlisted after the success of their #OurTownOurClubOurTeam season ticket launch for 2023/24.

Bolton Wanderers (‘Pick Our Kits Initiative’) and Everton (‘My Everton, Together With hummel’) were also nominated.

However, the winner was Burnley for its collaboration with the Classic Football Shirts company.

Elsewhere, Shrimps’ boss Derek Adams has been shortlisted for October’s manager of the month award in League Two.

Adams’ players climbed into the top six after taking 13 points from a possible 18 last month.

The winner will be announced on Friday.
