Piero Mingoia said he was honoured to collect a hat-trick of trophies at the Accrington Stanley presentation evening.

The winger won the Supporters’ Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year and Accyweb Player of the Year.

Josh Windass was presented with the Young Player of the Year award.

Mingoia, who finished the season with eight goals, said: “I am proud. I would have been happy with one award so to get three means a lot.

“To get the fans’ award is important and the players’ player is special as it’s your fellow professionals voting for you. They see you every day so that’s huge.

“There were a few of the boys up for it so it’s an honour to win it.”

Mingoia started the season under former boss James Beattie but didn’t make the squad at times when new manager John Coleman arrived in September.

However the former Watford man worked hard to secure his place back in the team – and has stayed there.

“I can definitely say it’s been a rollercoaster. In October, I couldn’t have dreamed this would have happened. The only prizes I would have won would have been the raffle!

“But I worked hard, kept focused and I am happy to be top scorer with eight goals. It’s just a real honour.”
