Midfielder Nolan claimed five awards while goalkeeper Dean Henderson, on loan from Manchester United, went home with three.

There were also awards for top goalscorer Stefan Payne, with 14 in all competition so far, while goal of the season went to Alex Rodman's stunner in the memorable win at Charlton and club captain Mat Sadler won clubman of the year.

The Supporters' Parliament event, which was held in a packed out Sovereign Suite at the Meadow, was well attended by the Town squad. Paul Hurst was absent as he was attending the Scunthorpe against Plymouth fixture, where the Iron won to guarantee a play-off position and all-but kill Plymouth's dreams. Assistant Chris Doig rounded off the evening with an interview.

Nolan, 26, who joined from relegated Chesterfield last summer, has been a shining light in the middle of midfield for Hurst's high-flying side.

He won the Official Supporters' Club player of the year, the OSC away player of the year, family stand player of the year, Away Travel Club player of the year and Super Blues player of the year.

Henderson, 21, claimed the OSC young player of the year, Away Travel Club young player of the year and the Super Blues young player of the year.

Sadler, who made 123 appearances across his two spells with Town, won the Super Blues clubman of the year.

There was a new special recognition award in the name of Shrewsbury Town legend and former Super Blues chairman Chris Smith, who passed last May.

The prize went to fan of 50 years Ruth Williams, who has helped out in numerous roles around the club over the last half a century.

A Supporters' Parliament special recognition award was given to head of media and communications Ian Whitfield.
