Hyde United Football Club is celebrating after picking up two prestigious awards.

Having been voted as the club of the month for October, Hyde were then voted as the Mirror Club team of the year.

The Tigers scooped the former after enjoying a terrific October, which harvested six wins and just one loss in all competitions.

Darren Kelly’s side received the award ahead of the 4-1 victory over Tadcaster Albion at the beginning of December – a result which keeps them firmly in the hunt for the title this season.

Meanwhile, the club’s general efforts were rewarded with the Mirror Club team of the year. The awards ceremony, which was held at Doncaster Racecourse, is sponsored by BT Sports and has been running for 26 years. It is held to appreciate the efforts of community and hospitality work that football clubs carry out.

The Tigers had seen off 1000 other clubs from around the UK to be shortlisted, alongside Basford United, Radcliffe Borough, South Shields, Shaw Lane and Ramsbottom United.

The award was presented to former club secretary Dave Goodwin and his wife Sue on the evening which was hosted by the BBC’s John Inverdale
