Just over a month after winning their first Harry Dewhurst Memorial League title, Dog Inn have received the trophy and individual medals

At the league’s annual presentation evening at Accrington Stanley FC. the league title was collected by Dog captain Liam Hill-Parker, who this week flies out to China to take up a teaching position.

His replacement as captain, Jamie Enefer, received the leading goalscorer award in recognition for his 31 goals in just 18 games. The award capped a fine few days for Enefer, who had scooped the top scorer, players’ player and manager’s player gongs at the club presentation the previous weekend.

Midfielder Pete Fletcher was runner-up in the players’ player contest, with goalkeeper Calum ‘Bushy’ Mahon taking third place.

Manager Simon Kerins said: “This has been a magnificent season and I am so proud of the players, who have been terrific all season. I am delighted that Liam was able to receive the trophy and his medal before he leaves us; he has been a fantastic captain for the past three seasons.

“Winning the title is a great achievement for our club and I am also delighted for The Dog Inn; the pub is at the heart of the Whalley community and the staff and regulars have been so supportive of us. Putting the league title trophy into the cabinet was a lovely moment. Hopefully it can stay there beyond next year!”
