BEN White was voted players’ player of the year and the South Wales Argus readers’ player of the year and Dan Butler was the fans’ choice but captain Joss Labadie was our pick as star man for Newport County AFC during the 2017-2018 campaign.

Analysis of our player ratings for the season as a whole shows that Labadie earned the highest average mark of 7.3 throughout the year.

The skipper’s season ended at Yeovil Town on March 10 and he’s facing another six months on the sidelines as he continues his rehabilitation from an anterior cruciate ligament knee injury.

But his outstanding displays in the first seven months of the season, particularly his standout performance against Tottenham Hotspur in January’s unforgettable FA Cup clash, saw him finish just ahead of Mickey Demetriou in our rankings.

Manager Michael Flynn is still negotiating with Labadie over a new contract to keep him at Rodney Parade after his injury.

Defender Demetriou, who made 53 appearances compared to Labadie’s 32 and scored seven goals to the captain’s six, ended the season with a 7.2 average rating.

In joint third place, with an average mark of 7.1, were loan star White and goalkeeper Joe Day.

And rounding out the top five was striker Frank Nouble with an average rating of 7.0, just ahead of Ben Tozer (6.9), David Pipe and Mark O’Brien (6.8).

Top scorer Padraig Amond, who netted his 14th County goal in last Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Carlisle United, ended his first season at the club with an average mark of 6.7.

Scot Bennett and Robbie Willmott also averaged 6.7, while Butler’s average was 6.6 and Matty Dolan ended on 6.5 in his first campaign for the club.

Butler, who signed a new one-year contract last month, was the big winner at the club’s end-of-season awards presentation.

The 23-year-old left-back picked up the Patron's Cup trophy for player of the year as voted by the fans and he also took home the David Williams Community Player of the Year award and the DSA Player of the Year trophy.

White was named Argus readers’ player of the year at the South Wales Argus Sports Awards in March and he also picked up plenty of prizes at the club’s presentation evening.

The 20-year-old centre-back, who has now returned to his parent club Brighton & Hove Albion after a stellar season at Rodney Parade, won the player of the year award as voted for by the Newport County AFC Supporters Club.

White also picked up the Doc Heffernan Shield for young player of the year and the Brian's Toms President's Cup for player's player of the year.

The away player of the year, as voted for by the Newport County AFC Supporters Club, was Day.

Amond won the Reg Taylor Fair Play Award and the Derrick Williams Memorial Trophy for goal of the season was awarded to Demetriou for his piledriver in the dramatic 3-3 draw at Stevenage on the opening day of the season last August.
