Talented young stopper Callum Chafer was rightly honoured with two gongs on the evening

Chinedu McKenzie was the main winner at Romford’s presentation night on Friday evening at the Catholic Club.

The forward scored 29 goals for Boro during the 2016/17 season and was one of their best performers throughout the campaign.

McKenzie picked up several awards during Romford’s presentation night to mark his excellent season.

The striker picked up Paul Martin’s Managers’ Player of the Year gong in addition to the Players’ Player of the Year award.

McKenzie unsurprisingly claimed the top goalscorer trophy at Boro’s presentation evening with 29 goals.

But the ex-Redbridge forward wasn’t the only winner on the night with Romford fan Mike Woods picking up the Gerald Gardener Trophy.

Versatile ace Chris Taylor claimed the President’s Cup while talented young stopper Callum Chafer was rightly honoured.

Chafer won the Supporters’ Player of the Year and the Young Player of the Year on Friday evening.

It brought another decent campaign for Romford to an end after finishing the Ryman North season in 16th to stave off relegation again.
